Merit Badge Requirement Activities
There are 4 Eagle Required merit badges listed below (marked with ER) where Irvine Prairie can be a great place to fulfill the chosen requirements (or through partnership with Tallgrass Prairie Center). There are 10 others that can provide opportunities for scouts to connect to outdoor spaces such as prairie ecosystems while progressing through their ranks!
*Note: The requirements embedded within each merit badge link below were carefully chosen that apply most to Tallgrass Prairie Center and Irvine Prairie. A link to all of the merit badge requirements is provided in the title of each page for clarity.
