Staff naturalists will provide programs throughout the day. Learn about the birds, trees and habitat animals while enjoying guided hikes. No pre-registration is required.
Grandfather Mountain adopted the Girl Scouts in 1971, inviting the girls to visit the mountain each September to learn more about nature and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Girl Scouts returned the gesture by adopting Grandfather’s late mascot, Mildred the Bear, as an honorary Girl Scout and presenting her with a series of pins to mark her many years with the organization.
Families receive group discount – $18 for adults and $8 for children ages 4-12. Closer to the event, an updated schedule will be posted online. For more information, visit www.grandfather.com/events/45th-annual-girl-scout-day/.
