Bring comfortable shoes and your camera. Open to the public. Admission is free (NRG typically charges $12 for parking).

 

Merit Badge Midway is the exciting educational component of Scout Fair designed to introduce Scouts to a variety of industries. Businesses and organizations from around the state will be sharing hands-on activities representing various merit badges that inspire Scouts to earn new merit badges, find new hobbies and maybe even future careers.

The Conservation Corner has exhibitors from a variety of local, state, and federal agencies that display information and hands-on activities related to environmental issues, animal science, and conservation. Scouts not only learn about conservation, but also have the chance to interact with exhibits featuring live reptiles, insects and other critters. Conservation Corner helps Scouts learn how to live in the outdoors and also how to preserve it for future generations.
