Come to Illinois Central College in East Peoria to learn about sustainability in Central Illinois with other Girl Scouts and staff and students of the college. Girls will earn the April “Forever Green” monthly patch as they work through four stations:
- Learn how to be Green. Girls will take ICC’s campus conservation tour to learn how the college embodies the motto of reduce, reuse and recycle.
- Grow a plant. Girls will do some small pot gardening with help from the Horticulture lab and will take home a reminder of the importance of sustainability.
- Learn about ecology on the nature trail. Girls will observe nature and sketch at least three plants and 2 animals/insects as they learn about environmental effects of climate change.
- Learn about green careers. Girls will meet scientists and professionals who work in the green industry or in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
