Meeting #29: Park/Roadside Clean-up

Beyond You: Learn about Our Environment (BY4)

You in Guiding: Be Involved in Your Community (YiG4)

Environmental Project (EP)

Another outdoor meeting! We met at a local park/playground and spent an hour collecting garbage in the park and along the roadside. We split the girls into 3 groups, and in one hour we gathered 4 bags of garbage, one bag of refundables, and two bags of recyclables. In each group we found that we had 1 or 2 really keen girls, 2 or 3 girls who worked fairly well, and 1 or 2 girls who were there but not that into it. Overall, though, they did a great job and I drive by the stretch of roadside every day and can see the difference from where we worked and where we didn't! (YiG4#4, EP)

Then we went to the park and played a game of Foxes and Rabbits. It was a great running game. We kept running out of something after about 4 rounds, but I believe that is how it was supposed to work. The game would probably last longer with more girls (we had 16). (BY4#4)

I think I like Quick Frozen Critters better, but it requires more equipment and set-up.

Then we had a snack and handed out their pottery from last month.
