Wonders of the Water Parts 1 and 2

Brownies can join Loveland Living Planet Aquarium on a journey to discover the Wonders of Water! Your group can book one 2-hour session or both (4 hours) for the complete journey!

Part 1

Share your favorite watery place with the group and learn why water is so important to people all over the world. You’ll take a trip to South America and discover how girls there have to collect water for their families. Afterwards, dress up in your best tea party clothes and join us for a celebration of all the foods water makes possible. We’ll even be joined by some special Aquarium guests for the event!

Part 2

Now that you know all the reasons water matters, dive deeper by discovering other Girl Scouts who have made a difference for water where they live. You’ll get a chance to pick a water conservation project, learn public speaking tips from the pros, and talk to guests at the Aquarium about why water matters. This workshop will also give you a chance to use your art skills and meet some water-loving animals.
