Girl Scouts

Every year, Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona teams up with the Desert Museum to offer a special Badge Day for girls and families to enjoy, explore, and discover the museum and our desert backyard. This year’s event will include an opportunity to build enrichment – engaging “toys” for our animals – as we meet a Girl Scout working on her Gold Award. Join us Saturday, October 9, 2021, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
