We welcome scouting groups of any age, and are always excited to host a group at the Preserve. Let our experienced naturalists teach your troop about conservation of Georgia’s native species.
Tours and programs require a non-refundable deposit of $75.00 for a 60 minute program and $90.00 for a 2 hour program. To schedule a program or find out more about large group discounts and scholarship availability, please fill out our program inquiry form here.
When can I schedule a program?
- Programs are available any day or early evening of the week, depending on previous scheduling.
Can I schedule more than one program in one day?
- Yes, just plan on a half hour break between each program, for lunch or snack.
Will my program include time for our troop meeting?
- Blue Heron Nature Preserve is a City of Atlanta Public Park and our outdoor space is open from dawn to dusk. You are welcome to arrive early or stay after the program for your meeting outdoors.
Can parents and siblings attend the program?
- Siblings may attend the program. However, the $8.00-$10.00 fee per scout also applies to siblings. Scout leaders and up to 2 chaperones for every 10 children are free. If additional adults wish to join the program, they will be charged $5.00 each.
Are adult leaders required to stay with the group?
- We must have an adult chaperone for every group. For groups of 15 or more children, we ask that at least 2 adult chaperones be present.
