Spring 2023 Activities
Join GEA for Education, Leadership, and Action!
Join us for an older girl-led “car camping” weekend on May 5-7 and again in June. Ideal for older girls (and parents) whose troops or leaders don’t camp, and girls who want to meet girls from around the Council.
Get confidence and interpretive skills to lead field trips! Training will focus on local habitats, conservation issues, and observational skills. More information regarding dates and times is to come.
Field walks at local natural areas! Meet for a trail hike to learn about the park’s mission, conservation issues, and local habitats, then meet with a park professional in a follow-up zoom meeting. Spring field trip dates will be listed in early 2022, on the calendar on the home page.
Cadettes: Breathe, MEdia
Seniors: GIRLTopia and Sow What
Any older girls: Citizen Science
Journeys can be scheduled at YOUR troop's meeting time and facilitated by one of the GEA leadership team members! If you're just restarting troop meetings, these environmental journeys provide relevant content, facilitation by Seniors or Ambassadors, and an opportunity to learn and take action as a troop. Leaders, send an email to Anne Fege (GEA advisor) at email@example.com.
GEA offers three girl-led, girl-developed advocacy workshops! Plastics and Pollution, Light Pollution and Local Wildlife. The workshops are facilitated by Seniors and Ambassadors and provide skills that are applicable to not only take action projects but also higher awards (Silver and Gold)!

Are you currently working toward a Gold Award project that involves the environment or sustainability? Join us for a bi-monthly Environmentally-focused Gold Award roundtable discussion, where girls working on higher awards projects can come together to make connections, foster new friendships, and find inspiration.
GEA has four Cadette badge PDFs available for leaders:
Night Owl Badge
Outdoor Art Apprentice Badge
While these badges can be done independently, you can also request facilitation for the first and last meetings spent working on the badge. If you are interested, please email Anne Fege at email@example.com for more information.
