Scouting the Zoo UPDATE - Register NOW!

Scouting the Zoo is still on for 2020! Due to current safety policies and guidelines, we have adjusted this annual event to more closely follow a family-based program versus the typical unit-focused event. The event will be held on Saturday, September 5, 2020 from 8:00 a.m. until around 4:00 p.m. with potential after hours programs.

Please follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-date information.  For more details you can watch the recording of our online event, click here.

All questions can be directed to and a member of our volunteer leadership team will respond. See you at the zoo!
