Happy Earth Day and Girl Scout Leaders Day
We can’t think of a better combination or a better reason to celebrate than Girl Scout Leaders Day AND Earth Day falling on the same day!
Girl Scout volunteers are known for their love of the outdoors and their environmental stewardship. You are bold, tenacious, dedicated, caring, resourceful, resilient, strong, and downright amazing. We see you out there making the world a better place! That’s why on this Girl Scout Leaders Day, we invite you to join us in honor of Earth Day in a bold tree-planting initiative.
Girl Scouts is joining forces with the Elliott Wildlife Values Project and American Forests. We’re setting out to plant, protect, and honor 5 million trees across the country in five years. Not only is that great for wildlife, it’ll also help ease the effects of climate change. That’s BIG!
For the fourth year, Girl Scouts of Colorado has made a donation to the Restoring Colorado’s Forest Fund to plant thousands of trees in areas scarred by wildfires. This annual gift has been our way of saying ‘thank you’ to our amazing volunteers for the work you do guiding girls as they grow through Girl Scouts.
This year, we’re more excited than ever because our gift of trees is perfectly timed to kick off the national Girl Scout Tree Promise. You have already planted seeds for the future with your Girl Scouts; now, gather your girls, inspire your community, do your part to protect and preserve the planet – ready, set, plant!
Join us tonight for a live, virtual kickoff event with Danni Washington!
Get started planting, protecting, and honoring the trees in your community now!
As a special thank you, GSUSA is offering a 10% discount at the national online shop, use code Volunteer2021 through April 30, 2021.
You are the heart and soul of Girl Scouting, and we’re grateful for all you do. If there’s ever anything we can do to help, any way we can offer support, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re on your team!
