You’re invited to virtual events at New York State Parks!
Girl Scouts love the outdoors, especially state parks. Join us to celebrate Girl Scouts Love State Parks weekend September 10-13 and earn a colorful new patch for participating in one or more of the scenic events!
This year, girls will learn about how they can help state parks through discovery, learning, then taking action. Begin the fun by signing up on our Virtual Girl Scout Leadership Experience. There is a course for each age level. Get ready to start your adventure, right from home!
Take the Course on our Virtual Girl Scout Leadership Experience!
While we are unable to be physically together for this weekend, we are excited to bring you an online course to explore and learn about Shirley Chisholm State Park. The course will be uploaded on September 10 right after our Live Q&A.
Learning outcomes for all levels include an introduction to Shirley Chisholm State Park, a park scavenger hunt, brief history of how a landfill became a State Park, and an introduction to wildlife and habitats.
Level specific learning outcomes include:
- Daisies: How plastic pollution ends up on our shorelines, how it affects the animal’s home, and what we can do to help.
- Brownies/Juniors: Learn how plastic is made, why it ends up on our shore, how it affects our ecosystems, and how we can help.
- Cadette/Seniors/Ambassadors: Girls will explore the life cycle of plastic, the types of plastic we find the most on our shoreline, how it affects our ecosystems and wildlife, and how we can help.
