Bluebonnet Swamp Visit

Due to low feedback on the air show survey, we will have a Troop Meeting on Sunday, October 25, at 3:00 pm at the Bluebonnet Swamp Nature Center.  (See map below)  The meeting will be centered around two requirements: #6 for Second Class and #6 for First Class. 
  • Second Class - Identify or show evidence of at least 10 kinds of wild animals (birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, mollusks) found in your community
  • First Class - Identify or show evidence of at least 10 kinds of native plants in your community
There are a number of boys in the Troop that need these requirements.  We will be hiking the mile or so of pathways around the swamp so be sure you have the proper footwear.  There is normally a fee to visit the swamp but it will be covered by the Troop.

There will also be a PLC meeting immediately following the swamp tour.
