The Girl Scouts of Connecticut will offer activities to help girls achieve the objectives of one or two of the following badges:

Ambassador Water Badge: The ancient Connecticut River is in our backyard and makes the perfect location to study and appreciate the importance of our freshwater resources. We will examine various freshwater wetlands, including the river and associated stream and pond, and get our feet wet while measuring the water quality of these different yet precious water habitats. This helps accomplish Steps 1 and 3 with opportunity to accomplish Step 2 of the badge. *Badge not included with program. For: troop, individual, individual w/adult.
Fee: $14 girl, $2 adult. Time: 10-12 (register here).

Brownie Outdoor Adventurer: Earle Park has all of the elements for an exciting and joyous outdoor adventure like streams, a pond, hills, and trees. Together, we will explore it all, including a study of the clouds to learn what they can tell us about the upcoming weather! We will provide a nature journal where you can record your observations and write down your favorite experiences of the day. Helps accomplish Steps 1, 2, 3. *Badge not included with program. For: troop, individual w/adult.

Junior Flowers: Join us to use different tools and microscopes to look deeply and closely at different parts of flowers! Learn about the jobs of each part of the flower and compare different types of flowers to see their differences and similarities. We will then take our investigation outdoors to learn about our local flowers and the plants that create them. You’ll learn how to determine which flowers use smell and which use color to attract their pollinators. Helps accomplish Steps 1, 2, 3. For: troop, individual w/adult).
Fee: $14 girl, $2 adult. Times: 10-11 (register here) or 11-12 (register here).

Senior Locavore: Some of the best ways to care for our environment include watching what we eat and where we obtain it. Eating local food reduces our carbon footprint and is healthier for us, too! Together, we will learn how to grow our own food, identify some local edible plants, discuss the benefits to habitat and human health, and prepare a simple yet delicious meal with food that we harvest ourselves. We will also share some additional recipes you can take back home. Helps accomplish Steps 1, 2, 3. *Badge not included with program. For: troop, individual, individual w/adult.
