Crystal Lake Park District Nature Center - Scout Programs
Over the years we have worked with thousands of Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts to help them connect with nature. From leading them through the requirements for a badge to providing a location for service projects, this relationship has proven beneficial for all involved.
