Woodlands Nature Station will host Girl Scout Day rom 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on March 25 at Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. Hands-on activities, live animal programs, scavenger hunts, guest presenters and more will help Daisies, Brownies, Juniors and Cadettes earn badge and journey requirements. General admission covers all programs and activities: $5 ages 12 and up, $3 ages 5-12, free for ages 4 and under. The public is invited to attend.
"We will have guest presenters for the first time at Girl Scout Day," said Monica West, naturalist at Nature Station.
Scouts will have a chance to play hide-and-seek with search and rescue dogs, meet therapy horses and canines and chat with a police K9 team. Service animals and their handlers will be coming from Four Rivers K9 Search and Rescue, Christian County Police Department, Hoof Beats of Hope, Equine Assisted Transitions and more.
Girl Scouts can come with their troop or individually with a parent, and are encouraged to bring friends. Plan to spend at least three hours to complete all activities. Most activities will be outdoors. For a complete schedule of activities, check the Girl Scout Day flyer available at https://www.landbetweenthelakes.us.
