Springtime is a great time to start recruiting Tiger Cubs!

When a pack begins building its Tiger Den of Kindergarteners in the spring, the den is so much more organized than a new den of Tigers just getting organized in September or October.  Plan one or two special Tiger activities in the spring and summer and invite the den to a pack summer activity.

Here’s to a G-R-R-R-R-E-A-T den of spring Tiger Cubs

Who:  Cub Scouts 1st-3rd grade and Girl Scouts K-3rd grade. Please register individually and not as a troop.

What:  Scouts will choose stations to visit and tours to go on. Some of the topics include: composting, native plants, Leave No Trace, insects, seeds and planting, and plant selection.

Where:  Aaron Education Center at the Bellevue Botanical Garden, 12001 Main Street, Bellevue, WA 98005. Please check-in at the Education Center when you arrive.

When: Saturday, April 29th, 2017 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. How:  To register go to www.bellevuebotanical.org and click on Learning in the Garden then Scout Programs.

Cost:  $12 per scout.  Adult chaperones are free.
