Boy Scouts, it is time to earn your Animal Science merit badge!

We have the wonderful opportunity to offer the Animal Science Merit Badge.

“Cattle, horses, sheep, goats, hogs, poultry, and other domesticated animals are important to people for many reasons. They supply us with food and clothing. We use them for recreational purposes. They work with and for us.”
– BSA Animal Science Pamphlet


Here’s how it works

  • 2  ½ hour long slide presentation in a classroom setting by GHR at our ranch or your location.
  • 2 ½ hour long tour at GHR where boy scouts see and apply what they learned during the presentation.  This is our standard tour adjusted slightly to correlate with this badge.

The price is $8.00 per scout or scout leader.
