Daisy Journey: Between Earth and Sky
Between Earth and Sky introduces girls to many wonders of nature: oceans, lakes, beaches, mountains, deserts, rolling plains. Experiencing this diverse terrain, with all its shapes and colors, furthers the Daisies' natural interests in math and science. The journey also underscores how essential the sciences and math are to any desire to protect Planet Earth.
Three leadership awards can be earned as girls work through this Journey:
- The Blue Bucket Award - encouraging girls to discover their feelings and the feelings of those around them.
- The Firefly Award - helps Daisies to connect with others as they recognize and develop their skills and then choose a skill they will educate and inspire others about.
- The Clover Award - earned as Daisies take action by teaming up to protect a natural treasure in their region
When Daisies have completed this journey, they will have a greater respect for themselves and the planet they live on.

Daisies in Action
Dig This® Earth Day Celebration
On Earth Day, Sunday April 22, Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada joined Dig This®, a heavy equipment playground, in partnership with Par 3 Recycling, at a Community Wide Recycling Event. Local Girl Scouts attended and brought their recyclables totaling almost 500 pounds and earning Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada more than $100! Girls got a chance to touch a bulldozer and an excavator. Some of the teen girls even got to drive a bulldozer!
Now that May is here we begin our plans for the next Girl Scout year. Your first grade Daisies will be bridging to the Brownie level and your Kindergarten Daisies will be continuing as second year Daisies. Whether you're a new leader or returning be sure you have the right training for the new year.
