·         Cookie Cupboard Locations/Help Needed.  The council is currently looking to secure locations for council cookie cupboards in Duluth and Waite Park/St. Cloud.  If you are aware of the perfect location, let us know! We are also looking to hire temporary cookie cupboard employees at both council cupboard locations.  Flexible hours optional.

<![CDATA[Free Programs for Girls in Superior]]> http://girlscouts.legacy-web-6.getliveedit.com/Blog/Region-2-Volunteer-Updates/Free-Programs-for-Girls-in-Superior/
   By Keri Lynn              (0) Comments

Troops in Superior: Did you know the City of Superior’s Environmental Services Division can partner with you for a program?  Their staff can bring these or other water-related activities to your troop meeting, or perhaps you’d like to set up a joint event with the other troops at your school--especially if you’re working on the Brownie WOW or Daisy Flower Garden Journey.  Options include:

 

  1. Water Cycle game . . . A fun, active game where you are the water droplet--roll the dice and learn where the water goes.
  2. Water cycle bracelets . . . Make a bracelet where each bead represents a water reservoir (lake, stream, ocean, etc.)
  3. Puppet show!  Themes such as keeping water clean and mercury bioaccumulation
  4. Make seed paper. . . Make paper with native plant seeds. Use the paper as you wish – bookmark, cards, etc. Then you can tear a piece off, plant it, and watch your seeds sprout!
  5. Wastewater treatment tour . . . Get behind the scenes to find out how sewage is treated.

 

Because of funding, these programs are only available to troops and groups based in Superior.  For more info or to set up a program, contact Ada Tse, Research Assistant, at 715-394-0392 x1018 or tsea@ci.superior.wi.us
