Plant Trees with Girl


Are you a former Girl Scout, current Girl Scout, a Lifetime Member of Girl Scouts, or simply passionate about making a difference in your community?


Join   Girl Scouts in the Heart of Pennsylvania (GSHPA) as we put the Girl Scout Law into practice and use resources wisely at a tree planting event.

We need your help to plant 700 trees  donated by Chesapeake Bay Foundation on a site to be determined in York county on Saturday, Oct. 7. Working with Girl Scout Lifetime Member Shelly Riedel. The Check-in will be at 8:30 a.m.  followed by a meeting to give directions and set up planting teams. Planting will start at  9am and we will work till 2 p.m. Bring your lunch because we will break at noon to eat. This event is open to all current Girl Scouts and alumnae as well as members of the community.


Come with a friend, by yourself or with your troop for this all-ages event. It will be held rain or shine. Join us on Oct. 7 and together, we can make the world a better place.
