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!

Adult Learning Opportunities

Now that May is here we begin our plans for the next Girl Scout year. Your eighth grade Cadettes will be bridging to the Senior level and your sixth and seventh graders will be continuing as second and third year Cadettes. Whether you're a new leader or returning be sure you have the right training for the new year.
