The ENC has been collaborating with the Girl Scouts of Orange County for decades to provide nature and science based scout programs for troops in Orange County. Scouts also volunteer and complete bronze, silver and gold award projects on our campus. We have consulted with GSCOC on educational materials and we are the primary provider of the “Eco-Badge” programs for all levels of scouts.
The Orange County Bird of Prey Center (OCBPC) is a volunteer organization in Orange County dedicated to treating and rehabilitating injured raptors and returning them to the wild. The Environmental Nature Center partners with OCBPC, utilizing their education birds in our programs, and helping them to spread the word that raptors play an integral role in the balance of nature. Both organizations believe that education is the best long-term solution to prevent and mitigate many of the dangers that raptors face.
