All over the nation, Girl Scout troops had sunset celebrations that day, reciting the promise, singing songs, and reflecting on what Girl Scouting means to them and their future. Our big celebration will be May 19th at the Julian !!brary at 1, and is open to all Girl Scouts past and present living in the backcountry. Girl Scout Encampment Girl Scouts of the Sunrise Valley Service Unit (which includes Ramona and the backcountry) held their annual campout for the older scouts at Anza Borrego in late March. The girls enjoyed a full weekend of orienteering, hiking, playing pools and waterfalls of the creek, tie dying T-shirts, learning the finer points of fire making and outdoor cooking, and overall playing games and enjoying each other around the campfire. Julian really needs leaders for the youngest girls (ages 5-10). Call the Girl Scout Headquarters at 619-610-0771 if you are interested. Training and support will be provided. Be part of the future of our children! On The Spanish Roads With Bill Benson By Kristi Holt Bill Benson is a familiar figure in Julian. As any parent here well knows, Bill, who retired nearly two years ago, was an excellent history teacher at Julian Junior High. And he still is! At 6:00 pm Tuesday, April 10, Bill will offer a lecture and slide show at the Julian Library where he will share his experiences about hiking the Camino De Santiago pilgrimage route across northern Spain.  In late September of 2011, Bill and his friend Emile, began their journey. They started in southwestern France, departing from the village of Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port. They trekked over the Pyrenees Mountains, heading west. 500 miles and many blisters later, they arrived at their destination - the fabled city of Santiago de Compostela, located near the Atlantic coast. We encourage you to attend Bill Benson's slide show and discussion; it is filled with wonderful anecdotes about Spanish history, the international variety of fellow travelers (you will hear some interviewed), and the concept of being a pilgrim and seeker. Come see this unusual and inspiring presentation.

Wild and Scenic focuses on films which speak to the environmental concerns and celebrations of our planet. "Films featured at Wild and Scenic give people a sense of place," says Tour Manger, Lori Van Laanen. "When we realize that the change we need in this world begins with us we.can start making a difference. Come watch and see!"

Susan Edwards' film, "Marion Stoddart: The work of 1,000" parallels the journey of two characters: one a young woman discouraged at her future as a suburban housewife, the other a river -- one beautiful and teeming with wildlife -- now a hopeless, toxic sludge pit. Chronicling an important episode ,in U.S. environmental history, this inspirational story examines the human side of acclaimed. environmental pioneer Marion Stoddart who proved that with vision and commitment, an "ordinary" person can accomplish extraordinary things. Marion Stoddart also has a surprising relationship with Julian! She writes: "1 have a special connection with Julian and surroundings. I worked as a Teacher-Counselor at Camp Cuyamaca in Descanso. CA in 1952.Camp Cuyamaca was one of the first pioneer school conservation camps in the United States. At that time, every child in the 6th grade in San Diego County. attended Camp Cuyamaca for one school week. While at Cuyamaca, another teacher-counselor and I rode our bikes from Cuyamaca to Julian. It was a beautiful ride - lots of hills (mountains?) and apple orchards!" Kevin White's film, "Return Flight" tells the story of the bald eagle, once an important avian predator in the Channel Islands, a group of islands just off the coast of Southern California. Then in the early 601s the bald eagles disappeared due to egg collecting, hunting, and DDT contamination. This short film chronicles how a dedicated team of biologists and their partners has been working tirelessly for decades to bring the bald eagle back to the Channel Islands.
