We are so excited to announce that Duluth is hosting the 2014 US Capitol Christmas Tree...and the community needs the help of local Girl Scouts to pull off the celebration!  Troops and families both are welcome to participate in the event celebrating the Capitol Christmas tree as it passes through Duluth from the Chippewa Forest on its way to Washington DC.  

The community-wide celebration will take place Wednesday, November 5 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm at Bayfront Park in Duluth, MN.

Girl Scouts and adult volunteers are needed to:

-Help with the ornament decorating station at the event
-Create sample ornaments for the public to use as examples as they decorate their own ornaments
-Cut birch tree coins (this would be a job for an adult with a wood shop and/or saw) 

Questions?  Want to volunteer?  Contact Amanda Morrow at amorrow@gslakesandpines.org or 218-302-3182.

We can't wait to partner again with the Lake Superior National Estuarine Reserve for our wonderful Girls in Science program. Join successful women scientists in hands-on, real life outdoor experiences that will show you how science helps the natural world. Experience the St. Louis River freshwater estuary by providing assistance with an outdoor research project. Come with an inquiring mind and be prepared to get wet, dirty and have a blast.  

Girls in Science will take place from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, October 4, 2014 and costs $12 per girl.  Since it takes place so early in the Girl Scout year, it's vital that you make plans to attend early and be sure to register.  Questions? Contact Amanda Morrow with questions at amorrow@gslakesandpines.org. 

Ready to register? Great!  Click here for the program registration form.  

Hope to see you there!
