The Girl Guide Law goes like this…
I promise that I will do my best
To be true to myself and develop my beliefs
To serve my community and Australia
And live by the Guide Law
And so they did… all 101 Girl Guides who took part in a workshop with the NACC team in Jurien Bay.
The girls worked towards obtaining their Food Security and Climate Change Challenge Badge in Jurien Bay on Saturday.
“Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” were the major themes at the Whitfords Coastal Region Girl Guides camp at the weekend, and not even the heat could dampen their enthusiasm.
Guides took part in morning sessions that included a beach clean-up and coastal interpretive session led by NACC, where they learnt more about coastal processes and food webs.
They also took part in important discussions about waste reduction and recycling, in addition to the importance of making informed choices that contribute to local and global sustainability.
These key themes were put into practice in the afternoon, where participants had the opportunity to work with local artists to make amazing artwork with marine debris collected along the Turquoise Coast.

Whitfords Coastal Region Girl Guides Region Manager, Cassie Pethick said: “What a beneficial event! Adults and kids alike got a lot out of the activities. The girls were able to apply their learnings into real life including recycling marine debris in to useful craft.”
The collaborative event was a first for NACC and Girl Guides WA, and we hope to plan similar events in the future.
