Below are some resources which might be helpful as ideas for fulfilling the Nature Merit Badge requirements.

My name is Darrell Barnes and I am a science nerd who lives in North Mississippi, so my nature playlists will be mostly oriented toward the Southeastern United States. A few of my videos are from abroad!

This resource site is a work in progress.  If you don’t see what you need, please leave a comment below and I will try to address it to the best of my ability.

Please enjoy but utilize the descriptions below the videos at your own risk.  I have identified these nature jewels (animals, plants, rocks and soils) to the best of my ability.  If you see a mistake, please notify me and I will correct.  Simply leave a comment below, and be specific!
