REGISTRATION IS OPEN and the countdown to Green for Good is on! In just a few months, Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana will be hosting a massive eco-expo for Girl Scouts, families, and friends, where we’ll be learning up on how to take action for the planet.
Going Green for Good doesn’t have to start on May 9. We are hosting FREE lead up events so you can jumpstart your commitment to the environment! These are opportunities to make an impact on the environment (and earn an exclusive Go Green for Good patch).
Read on to find out what we’ve got planned in the coming months, and a special sneak peak at Girl Scout Week 2020!
Official Pre-Green Events
Bees, Birds, and Butterflies
February 16 | Forest Preserve District of DuPage County | SOLD OUT
We rely upon creatures like bees, birds, and butterflies for the pollination of our crops, meaning we can thank them for helping grow much of the food we eat!
Join us at the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County Danada House to meet naturalists, learn why pollinators are so important, and find out the everyday things YOU can do to help them survive and thrive.
Community Recycling Day
March 14 | 10:00 AM | Vernon Hills Gathering Place
In honor of the Girl Scout Birthday and Green for Good, everyone is welcome to bring recyclables to the Vernon Hills Gathering Place on March 14!

Lake Michigan Beach Clean-Up

Offered in partnership with the Alliance for the Great Lakes, we are getting together on April 18 across the Lakeshore to clean up the beach and learn about the pollution affecting our local ecosystem.
Gloves and garbage bags will be provided; all you need to bring is yourself!
The Chicago meetups are sold out, but there are still lots of spots open for the meetup at Marquette Park Beach and West Beach in Gary, Indiana!
