Virtual Badge Day: Cadette Eco Trekker Badge
Cadettes: join us for an hour and a half Zoom session to start earning your Cadette Eco Trekker Badge! During this session, Girl Scouts will discuss the importance of the Leave No Trace principles, learn about native and invasive species to identify when in the outdoors, and practice their eco-skills before using them outdoors!
To complete the badge, Cadettes need to apply what they learned by taking a hike and use their new eco-skills and identification skills on the trail. Cadettes then need to research a wildlife or water issue that interests them, brainstorm possible solutions, and create a short presentation on the issue to be shared with their fellow Girl Scouts, school, family, or friends.
More information on how to complete these final steps sent in the follow up email after the event.
Participants will receive the Cadette Eco Trekker Badge in the mail after the completion of the Zoom session. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to give the badge to their Girl Scout after they complete the hiking and presentation portion of the badge.
Confirmation emails will be sent out the week before the event. This will include more detailed information about the event and the Zoom registration link.
Requirements: A Windows PC, Mac, tablet or phone with a webcam and stable internet connection.
