Girl Scouts Forever Green (GSFG), the Girl Scouts’ 100th Anniversary Take Action Project, is a national effort of girls leading their families, schools, and communities in improving the environment and protecting natural resources. Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. And, nowhere is that more evident than in GSFG.
GSFG encompasses three national projects – Reduce Waste, Earth Hour, and Rain Gardens – that lead to sustainable behavior change and environmental impact.
Based on Florida’s storm water runoff issues, Rain Gardens is the project GSWCF has adopted as our official take action council project. Our goal is to increase green space and wildlife habitats, and improve water quality through infiltration, which reduces water-borne pollutants running into streams, rivers, and other water supplies.
