STREAM Girls – Fort Collins
STREAM Girls gives Girl Scout Juniors and Cadettes the opportunity to earn a special patch as they serve as citizen scientists, anglers, and artists, to build an appreciation for watershed conservation and the environment. This outdoor watershed experience employs STEM-education (science, technology, engineering, math) plus recreation and arts to explore a local stream.
Every person is a citizen of her watershed, and Colorado Trout Unlimited (TU) has partnered with Girl Scouts of Colorado so that girls will get the complete picture of what their stream could mean to them.
At this event, TU volunteers will lead Girl Scout Juniors and Cadettes in observing a stream, collecting flow data, sampling macroinvertebrates (aka aquatic bugs), fly tying, and fly casting. The day also gives girls time to explore the natural area and record their thoughts and observations in their handbooks. Each girl will receive a STREAM Girls patch at the end of the day.
Colorado Trout Unlimited will provide the necessary gear and supplies associated with each activity. Colorado Trout Unlimited has enough gear/supplies for 24 participants.
Please be sure to follow all state, county, and local public health guidelines surrounding COVID-19.
*Please note: this program is available for non-Girl Scouts. We encourage our Girl Scouts to invite a friend to join them!
