Animal Badge Workshop-Missoula (Grades K-8)
Girls are invited to a special event with a host of exotic and domestic animals. Daisies will enjoy fun animal-related activities while Brownies earn their 'Pets' badge, Juniors will earn their 'Animal Habitats' badge, and Cadettes will earn their 'Animal Helpers' badge. Animal Wonders, Inc. will present an array of exotic animals including a coendu, a parrot, and a bettong. Girls will also get up-close-and-personal with a snake, a rabbit, and even a cockroach!
To earn their badge, and to learn about how animals can help humans, we will also have a visit from a local service dog trainer and her helpful canine. After the guest speakers, girls will enjoy the remainder of their badge activities - investigating animal habitats, creating animal toys, and learning about how we can protect animals.
Animal Wonders, Inc. is an amazing organization that cares for exotic animals that need our help. As part of your badge-earning requirements, you will be instructed to bring a donation to the event. You can choose from a list of possible donations to fit your ability or budget. Please read your confirmation letter carefully so you know exactly what to bring for the animals at Animal Wonders, Inc. Donations may include but are not limited to: animal food, fresh fruit, cardboard boxes, or towels or blankets in good condition.
GSMW will provide a light, healthy snack around noon. The registration fee includes Brownies', Juniors', and Cadettes' badges as well as a fun patch for Daisies.
This event is open to girls in grades K-8 and supervising adults.
