The Hogle Zoo Trails patch makes for a fun day at the Zoo with your Cub den! Scouts in the Great Salt Lake Council can earn their badge while visiting the Zoo in uniform, picking up litter on the grounds, and learning about 20 animals they see at the Zoo. Badges can be purchased at the Scout store. Click here for details.
