Nature Merit Badge

An online virtual merit badge provided by the Narragansett Council - Boy Scouts of America

The Nature Merit Badge combines a Scouts desire to go outdoors with useful knowledge about plant life and animals. Scouts have the opportunity to choose and identify the forms of nature that interest them most, from reptiles and amphibians to mollusks and crustaceans. Nature Merit Badge is not too challenging, but allows Scouts to think and learn about parts of nature and ecology that they may have never been previously exposed to.
