How Are You Celebrating Wildlife and the Great Outdoors?

At the end of each challenge, we’ll randomly select one lucky winner (three total) to receive an awesome action camera and a smartwatch with GPS tracking courtesy of the Elliott Wildlife Values Project (EWVP). Are you excited yet?

About the Elliott Wildlife Values Project
The mission of the EWVP/Girl Scout partnership is to develop girls as leaders in wildlife conservation and environmental stewardship efforts who positively influence their communities by carrying out the Girl Scout mission: to be girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. Through the EWVP, girls develop science, outdoor, and leadership skills through cooperative girl-led activities in which they learn by doing. In the process, they:
Grow a strong sense of self, develop positive values, and gain an understanding of their important role in caring for wildlife and Earth's natural resources
Connect with nature, the outdoors, and their local and global communities; network with environmental experts; and investigate career opportunities
Take action to identify community and environmental needs, positively impact the environment, and educate and inspire others to act as protectors of Earth and its wildlife
