Daisy Scout Program

This fun, interactive, animal-themed program helps Daisy Scouts earn their Birdbath Award, as part of the "5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals" guidebook. Our humane educators use storytelling and games to teach Daisy Scouts about basic pet needs and safety to help them be responsible future pet owners. They learn how people and animals help each other, and how they can help their own pets. 

Upon completion of the program, each scout will receive a special “fun” patch to signify they have earned their Birdbath Award.
