MERIT BADGE COLLEGE - LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE (VIRTUAL)

 

WHAT:   While working on the Landscape Architecture merit badge, Scouts learn to consider the importance of utility and beauty in planning outdoor spaces. They explore how plants should be chosen and how paths and other spaces should be arranged to meet the intended use of the area. They also investigate careers related to landscape architecture.

 MEET YOUR COUNSELOR - Scott Winkler has been a registered Architect for almost 20 years and currently works in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. He specialized in the restoration of existing and historic buildings. His work regularly includes site planning and coordination of landscape design. He is a former Cub Scout and currently serves as the Committee Chair of Pack 33 and Troop 15 in Attleboro. 

WHO: Open to all Scouts BSA members.

Narragansett Council Scouts and Adventure Card holders should select the ‘In-Council/Adventure Card’ option. All other scouts will select ‘Out of Council/Non-Adventure Card’

HOW:  This Merit Badge will be taught in a virtual classroom. The class has a capacity of 20 Scouts. Small classroom size provides all students with the opportunity to share and interact with the counselors and other Scouts. Scouts should be prepared to be challenged and to join the conversation! Participants who do not engage with the class may not receive credit for the badge. Scouts must be prompt for all badge sessions. Late participants may not receive credit for all requirements. Scouts must use a device with video to access this class.

Before beginning work on any merit badge, scouts are to have a discussion with their unit leader regarding the specific badge and counselor.

January 5, 2021- 7:00 PM - 8:45 PM EST

January 12, 2021- 7:00 PM - 8:45 PM EST
