Girl Scout founder, Juliette Gordon Low, was a famous lover of nature. Today, we honor her legacy by inspiring girls to develop a lasting commitment to the environment through our Outdoor Education program (Camp) and with the It’s Your Planet—Love It! Leadership Journey series, which teaches girls about clean water and air, noise pollution, global warming, soil contamination, and agricultural processes. Another way we teach Girl Scouts environmental stewardship is by demonstrating “green” practices ourselves.

Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta is a proud recipient of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta’s Grants to Green Assessment Award which enabled Camp Timber Ridge to receive an assessment from Southface at no cost. The assessment identified opportunities to optimize operations, particularly related to energy and water use. In our efforts to address Southface’s findings and to make environmentally sound decisions to ultimately reduce Camp Timber Ridge’s carbon footprint, we have recently implemented the following eco-friendly practices:
