Scouting is a natural fit for The Gardens at SIUE, from bird walks and conservation projects, to exploring the power of flowers, there is much to study in our gardens! Both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts have contributed greatly to our gardens. Scout leaders are encouraged to contact us to receive more information about our seasonally available projects.
Boy Scouts — We are proud to have five Eagle Scout projects on our grounds. Each contributes a vital component to The Gardens, and we enjoy supporting the young men who contribute their service and leadership to their projects.
Girl Scouts — The Girl Scouts will have a great 2014 in The Gardens! We are pleased to offer the following scheduled classes.
