2012 Take Action Project

Girl Scouts and volunteers of all ages will be helping their communities improve water resource conservation and protection. The council-wide environmental service project, designed by Freshwater Society, seeks to reduce phosphorus levels in lakes and rivers.

Together, Girl Scouts across the region will prevent the growth of 10 million pounds of algae by removing 20 thousand pounds of yard-waste before it enters lakes and rivers, saving $6 million in clean-up costs.

Water Quality Troop Activities are posted below!
