Its wonderful to hear that you are interested in starting some programs
at your University's botantical gardens that Scouting units can use to
help with work on various badges while learning many new and interesting
things. In many urban areas, Parks Departments do the same sort of
thing setting up programs encouraging field trips by youth groups to
their facilities and offering guides for nature hikes, animal study, etc.
In Fairfax County here in Virginia we've frequently used the wonderful
services of the county park system to arrange various nature studies.
You might want to see whether any local park system in your area has a
program that you could use as a model or contact the local Council
offices of both the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts to see what would help
most where you are.
I suspect that we have some folks with a better background in this area
on this list that can help you more. Great idea! Go for it!
