• 900 Girls Welcomed to Girl Scouting

    by Super Kristi Being a Girl Scout is one of those things that every girl should experience in their lifetime. Girls do crafts, sing silly songs, camp, and learn life skills, but it’s more than that. Girl Scouts is for fun, but it’s also for becoming leaders and accomplishing big things.

My best friends were in Girl Scouts with me and we got to have experiences that I probably wouldn’t have had otherwise.

  • Girl Scouts Go Sonoran!

    By Liz Baker, M.S. STEM SpecialistWe Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona are incredibly lucky to live in one of the most unique areas of the planet.  We share our homes with plants and animals that can only live in this region, and that others travel thousands of miles to see.  But when you live in the desert and see these creatures every day, it is easy to forget just how special they are, and how big of an effect we humans have on them.  Over 150 of our Girl Scouts changed all that at our first annual Sonoran Naturalists event Saturday, November 16th . Girls embarked on a desert adventure with their troops and families to earn their Naturalist Series Badge at Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum.  Each level followed a different journey through the Museum, exploring plants, ants, pollinators, and …
