A Special Program for the Girl Scouts of North Central Alabama
$20/girl scout for GSNCA Patch Program
$20/car of up to 10 for Galaxy of Lights Driving
Please join us Saturday, December 16th for what promises to be an amazing 2017 Festival of Trees at the Garden. This event will take place for girl scouts of all ages from 1-4pm. During this time the girls will hike to learn about different evergreens, which holiday plants are poisonous, and what nature items will be best to collect to create coordinating cards and wrapping paper. The girls will do all this while caroling around the Garden, learning songs and traditions from other countries, and participating in a project that will better the Garden during winter months. This part of the day will cost $20/girl and include the GSNCA Festival of Trees patch, the 2017 gift patch, the golden star to put above the tree, a snack, and plenty of homemade items for holiday display. Please consider bringing swaps to share with girls from all over our council.
In order to earn the golden star, please bring non-perishable food items to donate to our food drive.
The Garden is offering all family members a discounted rate if they would like to stay in the Garden while their scout enjoys the program. Scout leaders and education department staff will remain with the girls throughout the program from 1:00-4:00 pm. The reduced rate for family members will be $9/ adult and $6/child. Garden members will not be charged a fee.
The girls will enjoy creating holiday cards, wrapping paper and tree ornaments, a nature walk, music activity and a bit of caroling, tree decorating, group photo, Swap, holiday baking, community service project and a drive through the Galaxy of Lights!
Girl Scouts will receive the present, star and Festival of Trees patches included in the activity price. Optional tickets for the Galaxy of Lights Driving Night can be purchased separately.
