As the mom of both a Cub Scout and a Girl Scout, I'm constantly on the lookout for scouting field trips and activities. Here's one for both groups!
Hiller Aviation Museum is hosting Scout Saturday this weekend, Saturday January 12th, with special talks at 11 and 11:45 a.m.
All scouts and leaders in uniform, or with scout ID, will get in free all day.
At 11, Retired USAF Col. William Wardwell will describe his experience in scouts, rising to the Eagle Scout rank. He later became an Air Force aviator and flew supersonic Northrop T-38 and Lockheed C-141s.
At 11:45, Hiller presents A Girl With Wings, where former Girl Scout Gail Turner Bauer will talk about her times growing up with horses, earning a pilot license and building her own experimental aircraft.
The museum will have badge and patch programs, and you can pay an additional fee to participate in their Flight Sim Zone, from 11-2.
Hiller is at 601 Skyway Road in San Carlos. Anyone participating with the scouts, who is not in scout uniform or with scout ID, will need to pay admission.
