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. 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 reduce Camp Timber Ridge’s carbon footprint, we have implemented the following eco-friendly practices:

Replacing incandescent bulbs with LEDs

Recycling trash

Installing low-flush toilets (or high-efficiency toilets), which uses significantly less water than a full-flush toilet

An off-grid camp site was created for girls to learn about energy usage. This hammock unit has a single solar panel for any lighting or phone charging
