Earn Federal Service Hours at Rock the Mall While Visiting a Smithsonian Museum
The Smithsonian is studying how Girl Scouts learn in museums and needs help from troops of Juniors or Cadettes. All you need to do is meet a Smithsonian staff member at a convenient time at a museum, explore the museum as you normally would, and play a free, educational game while there (www.agentsofchangehq.com ). Note that the game requires that the group have one digital camera or iPhone available while visiting museums. There are four slots available. Please contact Erin Blasco at email@example.com to sign up your group and get more information.
A screening of OTTER 501
and a Q&A with the film's star, Katie Pofahl
Who: Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors
When: June 8, 2012, 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
Where: Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
10th St and Constitution Ave NW
Washington, DC 20560
A storm grows, a sea otter pup is separated from her mother, and a young woman bound for adventure blows in to town. On a windswept beach these lives collide and an entire species' survival gets personal. Katie and our playful pup, otter number 501, learn to navigate the opportunities and risks of life without anchor while we see the incredible efforts people have undertaken to return sea otters from the brink of extinction. Framed against the strikingly beautiful Monterey Bay coastline we discover just how serious this threat remains. Their adventure, unexpected as it was, illustrates what we can do to protect the southern sea otter...and ourselves.
Join us for a special screening of OTTER 501, followed by a Q&A with the film's storyteller, Katie Pofahl, about otters, ocean conservation, and the making of OTTER 501.
No registration necessary.
