Join SciStarter and Girl Scouts of the USA for a special Citizen Science Month event on April 24th to take on the Girl Scout Tree Promise! The Girl Scout Tree Promise is Girl Scouts’ initiative for Girl Scouts and friends to plant, protect, and honor trees as a nature-based climate solution. At the event, we’ll explore climate change and the connection with trees. We’ll find out more about Girl Scouts’ national climate program and protect and honor trees through citizen science. What’s even better, a scientist from ISeeChange, a popular citizen science project among Girl Scouts, will join us to answer questions and tell us how Girl Scouts observations are already being used to help trees! By the end of the event, you’ll have completed the Girl Scout Tree Promise.
This event is for Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts of all ages. If you can, take a picture of a tree or anything in nature near you (except for people) before the event. We’ll then show you how to share the picture through the ISeeChange app. If you don’t have a picture prepped, that’s okay–we’ll have sample data you can learn with before sharing your own observations after the event. We’ll also email you a link to an observation tracking sheet once you register. And if you haven’t already, join SciStarter.org/login (optional) to track your participation in all kinds of citizen science projects. Learn more at https://SciStarter.org/girlscouts-info.
