Green By Nature
Environmental programs and Girl Scouts Save the Bay
Girl Scouts have always been green, starting with our long-standing pledge to "use resources wisely." Today, through environmental activities and partnerships, Girl Scouts explore California ecosystems and wildlife, learning to value and protect them. Our hands-on Girl Scouts Save the Bay program connects girls with nature and helps them act now to protect Northern California's waterways.
Please consider a gift to support Girl Scouts of Northern California's mission to build girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Below are examples of how your support can help Girl Scouts achieve its mission. Gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Please consult your tax advisor as individual situations vary.
$50 could send five girls into the woods to watch 1,000 birds migrate to a northern riverside. During 2008, over 12,000 girls participated in programs connecting them with nature.
$100 could purchase a tree and new soil for girls to replenish a community garden in their neighborhood. In 2009, we hope to have 200 girls participate in replanting native species throughout Northern California.
$250 could hire a naturalist to take girls into the wilderness. In 2008, girls engaged with naturalists at 10 program sites throughout Northern California.
$500 could send a troop leader to training on global warming so s/he can inspire girls to become environmental stewards.
$1,000 could send 50 girls to the beach to see the ocean they have never seen before.
$2,500 could send five girls to the Trinity Alps to run with the Yurok and Hoopa tribes on their annual Salmon Run. During 2008, three girls ran in the Salmon Run. We hope to offer this opportunity to more girls in 2009.
Please help us continue to build girls who make the world a better place - your help today will help us take action tomorrow. You can make a donation online by clicking here, or by mail to the Oakland Girl Scout office, 7700 Edgewater Drive Suite 340, Oakland, CA 94621
