National Service Project - SHORELINE CLEANUP
Check out our new Shoreline Cleanup program - it's a great opportunity for girls to offer environmental service, complete programming and awards requirements, and advance their leadership skills. GGC is partnering with the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup to celebrate Global Youth Service Day (April 17-19) by making a difference together.
Between April and June 2015, girls can carry out their own shoreline cleanup – and they don't need to live by a coast to participate! A shoreline is any place where land connects water, so anybody from anywhere in Canada can participate. You could host a cleanup at a lake, pond, or even a local park where there is a drainage system. And for Guides, Pathfinders and Rangers, this is a great way to work towards their respective service awards.
How to participate: CLICK HERE for a link to programming materials and resources for planning your cleanup.

Storm Drain Marking Program
"Spawning Community Interest in the Protection of Rivers & Watersheds"
Help protect our local waterways! This is a challenge to the Guiding community to participate in marking storm drains and handing out information which encourages members of local neighborhoods to safeguard the water supply by keeping pollutants out of the storm drain system. Many people are surprised to learn that water entering the curbside storm drains flows directly into the local rivers untreated.
- For more info and to book storm drain marking kits
