ABAC’s Georgia Museum of Agriculture Hosts Girl Scout Day September 18

August 19, 2021

Girl Scouts and their families are invited to Girl Scout Day on Sept. 18 at the Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Georgia Museum of Agriculture (GMA).  The event will feature an assortment of interactive experiences relating to Girl Scout badges.

Girl Scouts may pre-register for one of two badge workshops, Textile Artist for Cadettes or Playing the Past for Brownies. The Textile Artist experience will provide Scouts a unique, behind-the-scenes look at various textiles in the Museum collection, an exploration of various textile arts, and a hands-on sewing class.

During the Playing the Past workshop, Scouts will dream up a character from the past, choose an historic costume, and experience life on a 19th century homestead by gardening, carding, drop-spindle spinning, cooking, and more.

Girl Scouts will enjoy other hands-on sessions provided by GMA such as riding train cars pulled by the Museum’s 1917 Vulcan steam locomotive, experiencing a one-room schoolhouse, and meeting resident animals including a mule, cows, gopher tortoise, and more.

Registration for the workshops is $20 per Girl Scout and includes admission to the Museum. Scouts may register online at https://www.gshg.org/en/events/event-list.html.

Families of Girl Scouts may also experience the Museum’s attractions during the event. Admission for the day is $10 for adults, $8 for senior citizens, $5 for children 5 – 16 years of age, and free for children under four.
