Briarwood Nature Preserve National Historic Place

Briarwood is the perfect place for scout groups to come and experience nature at it's best. 

As a former Boy Scout, Den Leader and Scout Master, the current curator has a great deal of experience with the needs of scout groups and will be happy to assist you in planning your visit so your scouts can achieve the maximum experience here at Briarwood.  If you have specific badges you would like for your scouts to work on we will be happy to assist you in setting these up. 

In addition to badges, we have many service project opportunities for scouts.  Lots of Eagle Scout  and Gold Award projects are available.

Onsite camping is available to Scout Groups.
