Bring Your Troop to the Conservatory
Franklin Park Conservatory & Botanical Gardens offers Girl Scouts unique opportunities to work towards earning badges while visiting our gardens. We are currently taking reservations for self-guided troops who can meet the following guidelines:
- Maximum group size of 10 scouts (More scouts can be accommodated but you will need multiple chaperones to break into separated groups of less than 10)
- Wear face coverings indoors and outdoors at the Conservatory
- Maintain social distance from other guests and staff
- Purchase badges separately from Girls Scouts
Scouts will be provided their packets upon check-in. At that time, they will be able to explore the Conservatory and complete the required activities. If interested, please contact us for more information and to finalize a program reservation.
