COLORADO SPRINGS — The Girl Scouts of Colorado got a hands-on experience with nature last weekend at the Cheyenne Mountain State Park.

This was all thanks to a partnership with the Colorado Parks & Wildlife, which is a part of the Girl Scouts Love State Parks program. The program is offered in partnership with the National Association of State Park Directors.

The program includes self-guided adventures around the park including archery and guided hikes. Below is a list of other activities that the Girl Scouts participated in:

  • nature journal station
  • build your own mini survival kits
  • scat and tracks identification
  • skins and skulls
  • great migration bird challenge
  • knot tying

They also taught the Girl Scouts an important skill, which is what to do if they are face-to-face with a dangerous animal.
Organizers say they hope programs like this one will raise a generation of kids that appreciate the state parks.
