Penfield- Parker Dam State Park will again this fall be offering programs for Webelos Cub Scouts interested in completing the requirements for the “Naturalist” and “Forester” activity pins.
Requirements for each of the awards will be covered during the course of each of the six separate programs; although parents or den leaders will need to sign off on the completion of individual scouts’ requirements.
The “Naturalist” programs will be held on Saturday, September 12 at 9:00 a.m., Saturday, September 19 at 9:00 a.m., and Sunday, September 20 at 1:00 p.m. The “Forester” programs will be held on Saturday, September 26, at 9:00 a.m., Sunday, September 27 at 1:00 p.m., and Sunday, October 4, at 1:00 p.m. Participants of each program will meet at the Environmental Education Classroom, located next to the Park Office.
Participants should also be prepared for several outdoor activities. There is no fee to participate in the Webelos Programs at Parker Dam State Park. However, participants must pre-register at www.visitpaparks.com by clicking on “Calendar,” selecting “Parker Dam State Park” as the facility, selecting the program and date of their choice, and completing the requested information.
Registrations will be accepted from now until the week prior to each program. You may register single scouts or entire dens of Webelos scouts, but please do not register scouts that you do not know for sure will participate because space is limited. If you have any questions, or if you have difficulty registering online, please contact the Park Office at (814) 765-0630 to speak to the Environmental Education Specialist. Please also call to be placed on a waiting list if the programs’ registrations are filled for all dates offered. There is no guarantee that names on the waiting list will have the opportunity to participate.
