Ponca City Now - March 10, 2016 2:07 pm

The Pioneer Woman Museum will host its second annual Scout Spring Fling on beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 12. Events will include hands-on programming for ages 6 and older.

Through a partnership with the Pioneer Genealogist Society, Scouts will be introduced to tracking their family history. The first 50 participants will receive a free family genealogy workbook, courtesy of the Pioneer Genealogist Society. The activity will meet some of the requirements related to Scout badges and patches.

Pioneer Woman Museum volunteer Luann Sewell Waters, an accomplished outdoorswoman and nationally known outdoor instructor, will bring a wide range of animal skulls and hides for the Scouts to explore.

Local Dutch oven chef Gary Don Smith will demonstrate outdoor cooking for the Scouts. His demonstration will include tasting fried doughnuts.

Candle making will round out the day’s offerings for the Scouts, who will make rolled and dipped beeswax candles.

Activities are free for Scouts in uniform or a troop shirt. Events will run until 1 p.m.

To make a troop reservation, please call 580-765-6108 or email [email protected] Individual Scouts do not have to preregister.
