Over 200 Girl Scouts and troop leaders attended our 6th Girl Scout Day at the Conservators Center. The event, which took place on September 16th, is an annual mainstay at the Conservators Center, though its date varies from year to year.
“We particularly enjoy educating young people, and we think our residents feed off the positive energy in the park,” says Mindy Stinner, Executive Director. On Girl Scout Day, each scout participated in information scavenger hunts, created cardboard toys for the animals, played hopscotch, and made s’mores. Because the organization’s residents are accustomed to visitors, the scouts could see many of them from just five feet away.
“Whenever our two wolves howl…that’s always a big hit with the kids,” adds Stinner.
The scouts also painted small rocks adorned with the Conservators Center’s logo and were tasked to hide them around their communities as part of a larger social media trend. Check it out at https://www.facebook.com/conservatorsrocks/
“Wherever people find them, we hope it brings awareness that we’re here.”
