Love Your Planet with River Valleys!


Join your Girl Scout sisters across the council as we celebrate the earth and everything on it with this year’s theme: It’s Your Planet – Love it! From Journeys and badges to council-wide initiatives, events, and shop swag, you can look forward to a Girl Scout year full of “going green.”

“It’s Your Planet – Love It!” is one of three Journeys, the core program of Girl Scouts. Daisies start on this Journey with learning about nature by visiting parks, farms, and zoos, talking to experts, planting trees, or creating a garden. At each program grade level, girls build on their experiences and knowledge of the natural world and by the time they are Girl Scout Ambassadors, they’ll be ambassadors for Mother Nature too! They’ll be identifying global environmental issues and creating their own vision for change, addressing food and land-use issues, improving food delivery systems, fighting hunger in developing nations, or rediscovering healthy eating traditions. We’d say that’s quite a progression!

We’ll be diving in and exploring leadership through this earth-friendly theme – and you’ll have more opportunities to connect with other troops, enrich your Journeys, and make a difference for the planet in your own community!

Check out The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting (available in our shops and comes in your starter kit) for more information on the badges we’ll be focusing on this year, like the Girl’s Choice Art in the Outdoor Badges, which were developed and created by girls!
