    I was just wondering if the girls will receive a patch for thir vest/sash at this event? Thanks!

    Hi Shayna, great question! Because this is a community event, rather than an event exclusive to the Girl Scouts, the event does not include a patch. There are Earth Day patches available for purchase through our online shop, however: http://www.girlscoutshop.com/Environment-Matters/EARTH-DAY

Please contact us if you have questions or comments for our staff.
