Come to the Fort Worth Zoo to satisfy some of the requirements for your badges!
Visit the Fort Worth Zoo and earn your badges!
Did you know that the Fort Worth Zoo is more than lions, tigers and bears? The Zoo offers programming on animals, plants, habitats, the outdoors, our environment and much more. They can help your troop earn a variety of journey awards, badges, and fun patches. Programming and events are designed just for your troop. If you have a smaller troop, why not invite another troop to join you for a “Buddy” event at the Zoo.
Here are some possible overnight badge work options:
- Brownies: WOW! Wonders of Water; A World of Girls; Pets Badge; Bugs Badge; Hiker Badge
- Juniors: Get Moving!; aMUSE; Animal Habitats Badge
- Cadettes: Breathe!; Media; Animal Helpers Badge; Night Owl Badge
- Seniors: Sow What?; Mission: Sisterhood; Voice for Animals Badge
