The Pioneer Woman Museum will host its annual Scout Spring Fling, beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 11.
Events will include hands-on programming for ages 6 and older.
Through a partnership with the Pioneer Genealogy 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.
Adansonian Wildlife Inc. will be on hand this year with live insects and other small animals for participants to interact with up close. “We are so excited to be part of the museum’s annual Scout Day. We will have lots of bugs for the kids and parents to look at and learn about,” said Ciara Utech, executive director and owner of Adansonian Wildlife Inc.
Other activities planned for the day include crafts, an outdoor nature walk, making personal first aid kits, and another surprise or two.
“Scout Day is a big day for us at the museum. We enjoying having the Scouts here so much,” said Pioneer Woman Museum Director Robbin Davis. “It’s our kick off to the spring.”
Activities are free with admission. Scouts are encouraged to wear their uniforms or their troop shirts.
