#usagsooutdoors Challenge! Week 4: Nuture Nature
Take USA Girl Scouts Overseas’ #usagsooutdoors Challenge!
In celebration of the great outdoors, Girl Scouts is excited to host four weeks of exciting outdoor challenges in July. Follow along, have fun, then make sure to share your photos on Instagram using the hashtag #usagsooutdoors for a chance to win an awesome prize.
Mother Nature provides us with so much beauty, inspiration, and fun that it’s only right to give back to her! Of course, there are so many ways to protect and enhance our outdoor areas—so use your imagination and get ready to have a great time while doing good. To participate in this week’s challenge, choose one of the following activities.
Add something cool.
Volunteer to do something like plant flowers outside your local library, help build a dog park in your neighborhood, or spruce up a trail at a nearby national park—and know that whatever you contribute will make the great outdoors even greater for people in your area.
Banish the bad stuff.
Have you spotted garbage in your neighborhood or graffiti on nearby park benches? Take initiative and gather a group of friends and family to clean it up! You’ll be helping the whole community, and you’ll feel an awesome sense of pride in doing the right thing.
Shout from the rooftops.
Wish your local government did more to protect and enhance the parks and other outdoor spaces in your area? Does your community recycle and use resources as wisely as they could? Think about it, then share your thoughts with others. Whether you write a letter to the editor of your local paper or contact your local officials over social media, every voice counts and can help make the world a better place.
Don’t forget to share pics of your adventure on Instagram with the hashtag #usagsooutdoors!
