Outdoor field trips at Bluff Lake Nature Center

Visit Bluff Lake Nature Center, a beautiful wildlife refuge and outdoor classroom in northeast Denver and for a unique and memorable experience! Environmental educators will guide Girl Scouts through exploration hikes and interactive activities specifically designed to fulfill requirements for a nature-related badge.

Daisies can earn their “EcoLearner” badge as they get first-hand practice protecting nature, or their “Outdoor Art Maker” badge as they create nature-inspired art.

Brownies can earn their “Outdoor Adventurer” badge as they explore the outdoors in a new way, or their “Bugs” badge as they experience the world of insects and spiders.

Juniors can earn their “Animal Habitats” badge as they learn about the places animals call home, or their “Flowers” badge as they enjoy the science and beauty of our native flora.

If you have something else in mind, ask us about customizing a program for your troop!

Field trips are 1-2 hours long, and visitors are welcome to stay and enjoy the site for the rest of the day following the program. Trips are $10 per Girl Scout (unless otherwise noted). There is a minimum of 8 Girl Scouts to schedule a trip. Adult-to-girl ratios for events must be met. There is no charge for adult chaperones or non-participating siblings. A variety of times are available, including afternoons and weekends. Visit for more information, or contact Bluff Lake Education Manager Heidi Pfeiffer at to schedule your trip!
