Girl Scouts Centennial Day of Service
On October 13, Girl Scouts from across the Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys region celebrated the Girl Scout Centennial by working together to improve local watersheds. During the Centennial Day of Service: 2012 Take Action Project, sponsored by 3M and in partnership with Freshwater Society and Friends of the Minnesota Valley, more than 25,000 Girl Scouts and volunteers across 49 counties spent the day raking leaves and grass from storm drains and public areas, distributing door hangers, and marking storm drains with an “Only Rain Down the Storm Drain” message to raise awareness about simple steps that improve local water quality.
