Golden Gate Bridging in San Francisco

Marina Park - Girl Scout CEO, lawyer and mom pens a column in The San Francisco Chronicle's City Brights about Girl Scouting. This week she reports that on Saturday, May 7, almost 4,000 Girl Scouts from 14 states walked across the Golden Gate Bridge and celebrated "bridging" from Junior Girl Scouts (4th and 5th graders) to Cadette Girl Scouts (6th, 7th and 8th graders). Volunteers from local Universities, museums, science, health and environmental organizations staffed booths where girls learned about careers in science, heart health and environmental stewardship, and Girl Scout volunteers ran robotics demonstrations and crafts projects.
