Girl Scouts Meet Dr. Jane Goodall

The Princeton area Girl Scouts had a special treat on Monday, January, 16, when they met the Dr. Jane Goodall of the Jane Goodall Institute after attending a Smart Talk event at the State Theatre.  The Girl Scouts presented her with a commemorative 100th Anniversary Princeton Camporee bandanna, and several varieties of their signature Girl Scout cookies!

In 2011, over 100 Princeton area Girl Scouts were awarded badges for their completion of the  Roots and Shoots program which was founded by Dr. Goodall.   The program  engages and inspires youth through
community service and making the world a better place for people and animals.

The Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands in Kingston, New Jersey partnered with the Girl Scouts for this program.
