Eat a semi healthy lunch and went home with the promise to do something everyday to protect the planet! 54 girl scouts and their families! Complete success  San Jacinto girl scouts from Houston!

 FIRST YEAR DAISY TROOP HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT

2It is our first year as a Troop. We have 13 Daisy’s in Troop 122.   We live in Tucson, AZ. For Earth Day we did a Picnic in the Park Program with Saguaro National Park. Saguaro National Park hosted a workshop on Leave No Trace Principles. Leave No Trace is an organization that promotes practices that minimize human impact in our recreation areas. Leave only footprints, Take only memories, Kill only time. We were the first group that they did their Picnic in the Park event with. They had guided programming for the families to engage in before and after their meal. They offered a short guided hike, information on how to access park programs and facilities in the future, junior ranger booklets, crafts & games drawn from existing environmental education programs and junior ranger camps. We also did a really fun arts and crafts earth hand project!
