What: Household Elf Brownie Girl Scout Exploration Day
Scout Exploration Days offer scout troops the opportunity to explore plant-based themes through a variety of hands-on activities and take-home projects. Each exploration day offers several activity stations set up throughout the Gardens for groups to explore at their own pace. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it.
Through a day of interactive hands-on activities scouts will have the opportunity to explore the many different areas of the Gardens as they learn about ways they can help the environment. Scouts will:
- Discover simple ways to conserve energy at home.
- Complete a scavenger hunt to learn more about water smart gardening.
- Decorate a reusable shopping bag to take home with you.
- Explore vermicomposting.
- Plant a house plant to take home.
This program is designed for Brownie level Scouts. Admission is $12 per Scout, which includes admission to the whole Gardens for the day. One adult (troop leader or parent) for every five Scouts is admitted free of charge. Additional adults and non-participating siblings (those not participating in the take-home activities) receive a reduced admission of $7 each. Siblings who wish to participate in take-home activities should register as Scouts.
