Each program is 1.5 hours long and includes at least two hands-on animal encounters and activities.  Programs meet most, if not all, badge requirements. 

The cost of the program is $7.50 per Scout and/or sibling* and $10.00 per parent. 

We also have Rescue Ranch patches available.  They are $2.50 if purchased with a program and $5 if purchased separately.
