The newly renovated Nature Center provides many opportunities for scouts to learn about the environment in which they live.

The Nature Center is a place where scouts can learn about their environment and gain excitement about the environment in which they live. The Nature Center's approach allows scouts to earn nature related merit badges while experiencing nature--not sitting in a classroom. Scouts explore and learn about the diverse environment at Ransburg and at home.

There is a wealth of information available outside of merit badge sessions. In their free time, scouts are able to visit the Nature Center to see and interact with animals found right here at Ransburg. The staff are always ready to explain and discuss what they have and inform the scout about the environment.

The Nature Center displays a fascinating information along the walls allowing scouts to explore and learn on their own. Many posters and informational books and resources are also available for the scouts. All merit badges require a notebook and pen in order to be successful.
