100th Anniversary Take Action Project


This project is a national effort of girls leading their families, schools, and communities in improving the environment and protecting natural resources. GSFG invites girls to Take Action on three month long projects occurring in February, March, or April: Reduce Waste, Earth Hour, and Rain Gardens. Participants are also encouraged to take an Online Pledge stating their year long commitment to GSFG efforts.
