Celebrate Earth Day with Your Girl Scouts
Earth Day is just around the corner, April 22. Check out just a few of the ways your Girl Scouts can celebrate both in-person and virtually!
Join one of GSCO’s Naturalist Clubs at one of their biweekly meetings! Girls will complete an activity celebrating or preserving the natural world created specifically for them under the guidance and encouragement of Girl Scout staff. They will also receive ideas to continue to spark their creativity and learning in between sessions. Girls can choose to attend all sessions in April or pick a few to attend. Sign up once, and you’re ready to go for the season.
