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.

Eagle Scouts and Gold Award Candidates

We have a variety of projects to enhance your skills as a leader and make a difference within your community. Here are just a few: Trailhead kiosk construction and installation, trail marking and enhancement, exhibit development, natural area restoration and landscaping. Call John Fiorina (815)455-1763, or email for more information.
