Linking Girls to the Land: Working Together to Conserve Natural Resources (90 second version)
The "Linking Girls to the Land" initiative gives Girl Scouts a deeper personal connection with the ourdoors and the environment in an increasingly urbanized society.
When girls gain outdoor experiences in conservation education, they build the foundation for important life skills, a lifetime appreciation for nature, and the start of potential careers in natural resource conservation.
The video highlights the "Linking Girls to the Land" Partnership among Federal agencies and Girl Scounts of the USA, on behalf of girls throughout America.
It's an opportunity for
outdoor adventure...It's a chance to see wildlife
It's a chance to learn more about our environment...And it's a chance for girls to gain exposure to career
options they may never have considered.
These are just a few of the benefits of an exciting new program
Called... "linking girls to the land."
Linking Girls to the Land is a national initiative that aims to partner federal natural resource agencies with Girl Scouts of all ages, all over the nation on both a national and local level.
Under this program, Girl Scout groups and agency staff work together to plan outings and activities on Agency and Girl Scout lands.
Agencies benefit.. They become ambassadors, if you will, for our mission and for the public land values that we wish to spread and share with the people.
And for some girls, This exposure to nature can mark the beginning of a love affair with the outdoors.
I've always liked the outdoors. But coming here, I feel that i love the outdoors.
