Dive into the world of wastewater! March 11th from 12 PM – 3 PM
The highly successful Flush to Finish wastewater program has been expanded to offer a day for Girl Scout Ambassadors to earn their Water Badge, and for Girl Scouts in other levels to learn about water issues in Florida and speak with women working in the STEM and water conservation fields.
All participants will visit Shingle Creek, which boarders the wastewater facility, and learn how it is connected to the Everglades and other bodies of water in Florida. We’ll also take a behind-the-scenes tour of one of Orlando’s wastewater facilities and get an exclusive look into how water is processed, recycled and reused throughout Central Florida. In addition to touring the facility, participants will meet and speak with female professionals that work on water and wastewater issues for the City of Orlando.
Through completing pre and post work (in addition to attending this program), Ambassadors will complete steps needed to earn their Water Badge.
Juniors, Cadettes and Senior level girls – as well as tagalongs in those same age ranges – are also welcome to attend and will receive a fun patch for their participation.
The “Flush to Finish” wastewater program has been called one of the most interesting and fun Girl Scout programs developed thus far- don’t miss this exciting opportunity to see how we have expanded the fun patch program to now help Ambassadors complete steps towards earning their water badge AND help girls in other levels learn more about water issues locally.
All participants must register by March 7th, 2017.
