Scouts

The McKinney Geology Teaching Museum at AppState provides opportunities for all levels of girl and boy scouts to earn merit badges and patches.

Other than the regular opening hours (M-F 8:am to 5:00pm), the Answersphere at the Museum, which is ran by Geology students, is open from Sunday-Thursday 5:00-8:30pm. This evening slot is also a great time to bring your troop as Rankin Hall is much quieter than during the day.

For questions about bringing your troop to the museum, please contact Marta Toran (toranml@appstate.edu).
