The Naturalist Center offers two fun opportunities for Girl Scouts to learn more about sustainability and rainforests:

Living Eco-Wise Patch
For Juniors (Grades 4-5)

Discover what makes the Academy the greenest museum in the world—from our reused blue jean insulation to our amazing Living Roof covered with native plants. Increase your eco-awareness doing fun activities like making your own recycled-art masterpiece. Explore the museum on your own before and after the program. To register, call 800-794-7576:
Sat., Nov. 19, 2011, 10 am–noon
Sat., Feb. 11, 2012, 10 am–noon

Rainforest Expedition Patch
For Brownies and Juniors (Grades 2-5)
Set out on a self-guided adventure, taking a closer look at tropical rainforests, the biodiversity found within them, and the important roles they play in the global ecosystem. Print patch requirements and chaperone/troop leader information from the Naturalist Center webpage before you visit or pick them up from the Naturalist Center when you arrive.

Coming to the Academy with 10 or more people? Bring your scouts at the special group rate! Register online with the user ID “GirlScoutsNorCal” and the password “alligator.” Then click on “General Admission Tickets.”
