Leader Feature: Girl Scouts Tackle Climate Change
Every month we will have ideas, tips, and resources for you to use during troop meetings or as part of your Girl Scout year.
Our parent organization, Girl Scouts of the United States of America, has created a program to help girls combat climate change. Girls are hearing about climate change and they want to help. But since the challenges are on a global scale, trying to decide how to help can be daunting. While there are many steps an individual and their family can do to help, as an organization, Girl Scouts have committed to planting 5 million trees by 2026.
With your girl or as a troop, you can be part of this nationwide commitment. And even better, it can be done while managing Covid-19 restrictions since you can be outside and socially distant. Girls can unlock this patch once they have logged their tree:
Are you a service team member? Fall is a great time to plant trees in California - consider hosting a larger scale event for your service unit. Many cities will provide trees free of charge if you will agree to plant it.
