Click Here to Register

Calling all Brownies! Please join us on Saturday, June 1, 2024, from 1pm – 3pm at Pirozzolo Park in Elmira, to learn about all the cool bugs that live in the Chemung River. These bugs, called macroinvertebrates, are not only cool to look at, they also can tell us a lot about our water quality!

The activity will take place at Pirozzolo Park in Elmira, NY. We will meet at the picnic pavilion next to the playground to do some bug crafts and education, then we will head down to the boat launch to catch some stream bugs! If the temperature is less than 50F or there is rain, we will meet at the Friends of the Chemung River headquarters, the Midtown Mall, 111 N. Main Street, Suite 8, Elmira, NY to complete the activities.

The cost per girl is $7 and will include the Bug Badge. Registration is limited to 20 scouts. Girl Scout Leaders and Co-Leaders are free. Please contact us at outreachcoordinator@chemungriverfriends.org with any questions.
