Powers of Observation
Next time you are out in nature – try slowing down and using your powers of observation. Spot five things that are green, find places that might be homes for animals, and identify all the sounds you hear. Check out this activity sheet for an observation game you can play with friends and family:
Girl Scouts Troop 70016 exercised their powers of observation when they visited the Chapman DeMary Trail in Purcellville, Va. They also got their hands dirty by adding pollinator-friendly plants to the meadow along the trail. They also discovered lots of worms and had a great time climbing on the old sycamore tree near the creek too.
Getting out in nature is the first step to understanding and protecting it! We thank the girls for being stewards of the trail! And we thank all of our sponsors for helping us inspire our next generation of environmental stewards!
