Hey Scouts,
Did you know that there are special activities in the park just for you! The Timucuan Preserve provides scouts with an ideal place to earn their nature and outdoor adventure badges. The time spent in our programs counts towards the National Park Service Resource Stewardship Boy Scout Ranger and Girl Scout Ranger certificates and patches. Here you can walk the trails, go on a scavenger hunt or become a Junior Ranger. Troop leaders, click the links below to learn more about planning a visit to the Preserve.
