Date: December 9, 2017 - December 9, 2017 | Time: 7:30 am - 3:00 pm

The Cape Fear Council and the Bald Head Island Conservancy are partnering to provide this unique merit badge opportunity for Boy Scouts.  In this workshop, Scouts will complete most of the requirements for Environmental Science Merit Badge.  Scouts should be in Class A uniform and bring along note taking materials.  Each Scout will receive a ferry ticket, merit badge pamphlet, workbook, and blue card as part of the program fee.

Participants should meet at the Deep Point Marina in Southport no later than 7:30am as we will be departing on the 8:00am ferry to the Island.  Scouts will return on the 2:30pm ferry.  While on the island, the Conservancy will coordinate transportation.  Please bring a bag lunch.

The following requirements should be done at home and materials should be brought to the class.  This is required to complete the merit badge:

Environmental Science History (requirement 1)
Environmental Science Terms (requirement 2)
Air Pollution (requirement 3b)
Endangered species (requirement 3e)
Pollution Prevention (requirement 3f)
Pollination (requirement 3g)
