Earn A Patch

Patches are available from May through February and are not available during our Fred & Dorothy Fichter Butterflies Are Blooming exhibition.

During this self-guided program scout troops will discover fun and surprising things about birds as they explore Meijer Gardens using our “Take Flight with Birds” guide and exploration sheet. Scouts will visit a variety of habitats, including the Tropical Conservatory, wetlands, woods and Michigan’s Farm Garden as they search for birds and examine bird sculptures, too. Dress for the weather and allow 2 ½ to 3 hours to complete the activities.
