Scout Programs


Scout Nature Walks  
Explore Tacoma's Parks with a naturalist. Discover amazing plants and animals and how they adapt to the seasons. Walks are available at seven different parks by reservation.

These hour-long nature discovery walks are $50.00 per park per group of up to 15 scouts and their accompanying leaders. There will be an additional charge of $4.00 per scout above 15. Groups must follow scout safety protocols and provide the proper number of chaperones/leaders. Program is only for scouts. Any siblings will be counted as a scout and charged accordingly.

Contact Brianna to book your walk at briannac@tacomaparks.com or (253) 591-6439(253) 591-6439. Please note that although the walks have a nature focus, the content of the walk will not be thorough or deep enough to meet any complete set of badge requirements for any scouting organization. Please do indicate your area(s) of highest interest when booking a walk.
