We can't wait to partner again with the Lake Superior National Estuarine Reserve for our wonderful Girls in Science program.

Girls in Science will take place from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, October 4, 2014 and costs $12 per girl.  Since it takes place so early in the Girl Scout year, it's vital that you make plans to attend early and be sure to register.  Questions?
