Special Message from Governor Jared Polis to Troop 65740


Girl Scout Troop 65740 from Denver received a special message from Colorado Governor Jared Polis after earning the Climate Change patch! One of the requirements is to talk to a state representative or senator about your concern regarding climate change and ask what they are doing to prevent it. The girls took action and went one step further—contacting Governor Polis himself! Instead of simply writing a letter, they drew pictures of animals affected by climate change. The girls are concerned not just about their own future due to climate change, but of Colorado’s wildlife too. The pictures they drew are of Colorado wildlife that are already threatened or endangered, and face an even more difficult future because of climate change. Governor Polis was so impressed that he sent the girls a special video message. Watch it here.
