The Education Department at Stroud Water Research Center is excited to offer the Fish and Wildlife Management Merit Badge in a hybrid delivery format. The hybrid merit badge model will include an introductory Zoom meeting and one day of in-person programming.

The introductory meeting will review the merit badge requirements, introduce the hybrid online learning platform, and inform scouts of the requirements they must complete online prior to attending the in-person program day. Enrolled scouts will then have two weeks to complete and submit the online requirements, which will be reviewed and accepted or returned if more information is required.

The in-person program will include the remaining requirements and discussions to fulfill the Fish and Wildlife Management Merit badge, including a required fishery or wildlife habitat improvement project.

We invite any interested Scouts BSA Troops or scouts to register for this hybrid merit badge program. Preference will be given to scouts or troops who were unable to attend the program last spring. Registration is not automatic acceptance in this program, although registration is required to be considered for this hybrid merit badge program.

Please note, the hybrid portion of this merit badge program will occur via the Stroud Center’s online learning portal. To maintain youth protection protocols and to access the online course, parents or adult caregivers must use their email addresses to register scouts for this hybrid program and monitor their online activities. All communications will go through the online portal or to the adult’s email address (and another registered leader).

If you have any questions, please contact David Kline.
