SCOUT WORKSHOPS

Girl Scouts

For a limited time, all participants in a Wonders of Water Workshop will receive a WOW Journey Book for free!

Wonders of the Water Part 2

Date: April 29

In the second half of our journey, Brownies will learn how to be water advocates by choosing a water conservation message to share with others. The girls will design posters, practice public speaking, and learn about their chosen issue before heading to the Aquarium floor to share their message. In true Girl Scout fashion, the girls will teach Aquarium guests the importance of saving water in a respectful way. After communicating about water, the Brownies will brainstorm ways they can get even more people to listen to their message. After completing the workshop, the girls will be ready to earn their SAVE Water Award.
