Girl Scouts

Daisy Petals

Make the World a Better Place 
Help the environment by cleaning it up and making it attractive to wildlife! Together we'll make a craft from natural materials to help the planet!

Using Resources Wisely 
Learn all about what is recyclable- cans, bottles, water, even food waste! Together we'll make a craft from recyclable materials to help the planet!

Brownie Try-its

Earth and Sky 
Brownies will get their hands dirty exploring layers of soil that provide habitats for many organisms. We’ll also learn about the sun and creatures of the air.

My Body 
Our bodies are amazing machines. In this program, Brownies will learn about what makes our bodies work by investigating actual organs and participating in fun activities.

Water Everywhere 
All living things need water. In Water Everywhere, Brownies will explore the characteristics of water in fun experiments and look for plants and animals that live in water.

Eco-Explorer 
Ecology is the study of how plants and animals live together in the environment. During this program, Brownies will learn where different organisms live and how they are dependent on one another for survival in the variety of habitats they are found.

Watching Wildlife 
Have you ever taken a really close look at some of the animals that live in your neighborhood? If you do, you’ll discover many interesting things about them. Brownies will learn about a variety of adaptations that allow different animals to survive here in Indiana and beyond.

Animals 
How do animals differ from each other? Discover what animals occur here and what they need to survive in their wild habitats.

Outdoor Adventure 
Enjoy a nice hike on the NMP EcoLab trails through wetland, forest and prairie habitat and learn how to stay safe while enjoying the outdoors.

Plants 
Investigate the plants of the NMP EcoLab and learn how to identify the flora that surrounds us here in Indiana. Investigate what plants need to survive and their life cycle. You’ll plant your own seeds to take home and watch grow!

Science in Action 
How does science affect your life? We will investigate this question by taking a hike down in the NMP EcoLab and doing some hands-on experiments in the Nina Mason Pulliam Nature Center.

Senses 
What senses do animals use and how do we use our own to survive and experience the world around us? Discover how the adaptations of different animals enable them to best use their senses to hunt, hide and find a mate. Then, investigate the sights, sounds and smells of the NMP EcoLab!

Water Drop 
Discover water-related environmental issues and explore our own beliefs and values. We will take a wetland hike, learn about the importance of water and how to protect it for humans and wildlife alike. Through water quality testing, we will investigate what makes a healthy stream!

Junior Girl Scouts

Earth Connections 
Ecology is the study of living things and their environment. Junior Girl Scouts will go outdoors to explore different ecosystems, learn about adaptations, and discover changes that take place in our environment.

Water Wonders 
Water is the substance that maakes Earth the blue planet. Find out how water cycles through our environment and what makes up a water ecosystem, and experiment to learn about the properties of water.

Wildlife 
Junior Girl Scouts will become naturalists by exploring plants and animals that live in our area. Use different tools to get a closer look at wildlife, and participate in activities to make you more wildlife wise.

Eco-Action 
Start by taking action. Should we be concerned about our environment? If so, how can we care for it? Investigate the answers to these questions. Then we will roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty doing a service project in the NMP EcoLab.

Plants and Animals 
Explore the world of plants and animals and see how they interact, as you go on a scavenger hunt. Then determine how big a part plants and animals play in a person's everyday life.

Science Discovery
What is science and what do scientists do? Junior Girl Scouts become the scientists by making observations, making hypotheses and doing experiments.

Science in Everyday Life 
Does science really have an effect on your day-to-day life? We will explore this topic by taking a "Its Your Life" inventory and doing some hands-on-minds-on investigations in the Nina Mason Pulliam Nature Center.

Weather Watch 
Participants will investigate the causes and elements of weather by making observations in the NMP EcoLab and through hands-on experiments. We will then take a look at how weather is measured and predicted by using the NMP EcoLab's own weather stations.

Outdoor Surroundings 
Take a hike, and enjoy the outdoors. Participants will have fun as they walk the grounds of the NMP EcoLab and observe and interact with nature around them.

Water Drop 
Discover water-related environmental issues and explore our own beliefs and values. We will take a wetland hike, learn about the importance of water and how to protect it for humans and wildlife alike. Through water quality testing, we will investigate what makes a healthy stream!

Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors

Eco-Action 
Older Girl Scouts have a unique opportunity to learn about how they can improve the quality of the environment. The Nina Mason Pulliam EcoLab will be used as the classroom for this program. The girls will have a chance to connect with the NMP EcoLab staff, explore their environment, and complete a service project.

All About Birds 
Scouts will investigate what makes a bird a bird. By going on a bird walk and participating in games and hands-on activities, participants will learn what attributes birds share with each other, followed by completion of a project that will help birds at the NMP EcoLab or in their own neighborhood.

Wildlife 
How do humans impact animals? How do animals impact humans? Answer these questions as we observe and survey the various forms of creatures found in the NMP EcoLab. We will then wrap up the program by doing a hands-on service project that will enhance wildlife habitat.

Water Drop
Discover water-related environmental issues and explore our own beliefs and values. We will take a wetland hike, learn about the importance of water and how to protect it for humans and wildlife alike. Through water quality testing, we will investigate what makes a healthy stream!
