The Think Like a Citizen Scientist Journey combines two things
we know girls love: STEM and the Outdoors. Girl Scouts will learn how
to use the scientific method by taking part in live experiments to
practice making observations, collecting data, and asking questions
about the natural world around them. The focus of this journey will be
on the conservation of biodiversity.
Girl Scouts will earn their Journey by completing the Think Like a
Citizen Scientist Lab Book, which includes watching the three
pre-recorded videos, completing the activities in the book, and
participating in a SciStarter Citizen Scientist Project.
All components of the Journey are included in this program.
Girl Scouts will complete a Take Action project with inspiration from
organizations actively working to protect biodiversity including the
Akron Zoo, John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, The Reef Institute,
Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Lion Country Safari, and more!

Girl Scouts are you ready to take the flight of a lifetime?
Join us as we discover, explore, and take action for butterflies! The
virtual experience will include everything from the lifecycle of
butterflies, to the different species and characteristics, to why
butterflies are so important to protect, and so much more. Just like
the butterflies we will learn about, you will also take a fantastic
journey as we visit butterfly gardens and advocates in South Florida,
Missouri, Minnesota, Michigan, and all the way to India!
This badge program has been developed to meet all the activity
requirements for the council's own badge for all levels of girls. A
recording of the event will be sent out afterward for girls to view
or review at their own convenience.
We know the girls will enjoy the whole program, but they may take a
break and come back to the recording if they would like. All levels of
girls are required to complete a Take Action Project to earn their
badge. A helpful guide will be included to inspire you as you prepare
for your Take Action Project.

Join us for Be Kind to Your Mind, a program centered on girls
exploring the topic of self-care through expert-led teachings
and group activities. Girls will learn what self-care means,
strategies for managing stress, and more, all while connecting with
fellow Girl Scouts to explore these topics.
We are still feeling the impact of the past year and are learning to
navigate the new normal. The topic of self-care is a crucial part for
our mental health so that we are presenting our best selves every day.
The program will include presentations facilitated by community expert
and activities including
- make your own bath
fizzies, trail mix, and zen garden
- puzzle stations
- and more!
This program will focus on self-care: what it is and how to find the
best forms for each person, how to identify burnout, a discussion on
mindfulness, and common ways people perform self-care acts.
The cost of this program is $23. Girls will take home their own
yoga mat, self-care activities, and the beautiful Be Kind to Your
Be Kind to Your Mind 2021 is presented by Baptist Health South Florida
