Girl Scouts of the USA
National Public Lands Day provides an opportunity for Girl Scouts of all ages to improve America’s parks, forests and beaches.
Girl Scouts may participate as a troop, council or an individual. In 2012, more than 240 Girl Scouts helped plan NPLD events and 635 events featured Girl Scouts volunteers.
Girl Scouts participating in NPLD can:
- Work side by side with an environmental expert
- Enjoy a hands-on activity improving public lands or a Girl Scout camp while learning about nature
- Engage in long term service projects that benefit the community and observe how their actions benefit our planet
- Learn about environmental and outdoor careers
- Earn Girl Scout awards related to the environment
- Use the event to complete a Gold, Silver or Bronze award
- Be active outdoors and have fun!
