Outdoor Resources
Taking girls outside can be a fun time for everyone as girls develop outdoor skills and a passion for nature. These videos can help volunteers give girls a sense of empowerment in the outdoors, show them how to use natural resources more wisely (including respecting our environment and wildlife), and help them become lifelong stewards of the land and our natural resources. See Outdoor Progression Chart

Step by Step: Developing Outdoor Skills in Girls
At Girl Scouts, we work to build girls’ outdoor skills and inspire girls to care for the environment as they grow. The Girl Scout Outdoor Progression Chart is a tool you can use as you advance girls’ skills in an age-appropriate way.

Burn Ban Notice

A burn ban is an emergency declaration submitted through recommendations by the County Fire Marshal, Forest Service and Weather Service which prohibits any outdoor burning or open flame during special times of drought or extreme weather conditions. In addition, there is a scale called the Keetch-Byrom Drought Index that is used which measures the moisture in the soil that is directly proportional to that found in vegetation.

When a burn ban notice is declared in a county, no fires of any kind are permitted at the GSNETX camp noted below until the burn ban is lifted by the County Fire Marshal. Propane stoves and/or unit kitchens can be used for food preparation. There is currently no burn ban.
