The Prospect Park Zoo is a great place for Girl Scouts to learn about animals, conservation, and more! Earn a patch, work on badge activities, or take a guided tour.



The Prospect Park Zoo Patch Program


Earn a Girl Scout Council of Greater New York patch during your visit. This self-guided program includes activities to complete at the Zoo, with a follow up activity to complete at a troop meeting. Patches can be purchased separately ($1.50 each) after your visit.
