Learning about the birds and the bees

9 Jun

Our friendly neighborhood pollinators are getting some respect and attention these days thanks to the efforts of Daisy Girl Scout Troop 60344.

Earlier this spring, the Scouts, all kindergarten or first graders, made posters about why pollinators are important to our ecosystem. It was the “Take Action Project” part of their year-long “Welcome to the Flower Garden” journey badge.

The young artists shared their posters with each other at their meeting on May 17. Each girl then had to find a place in the community to display her poster, and take a photo of the final location.

Keep an eye out for these posters, because they’re all around town (or soon will be). The Scouts, and where they’ve hung their posters (if decided), are:

  • Alayna Henrichs
  • Alexa Weber: her father’s office
  • Claire Frisk: Gosnell Big Woods trailhead (TBD)
  • Harper Bozzelli: Four Mile Creek trailhead (TBD)
  • Julia Meyers: Maplewood Senior Living Community
  • Kennedy Kleps: Whiting Nature Preserve trailhead (TBD)
  • Natalie Wigton: her father’s office
  • Penelope Patterson: her grandfather’s office
  • Sophia Elias

The girls’ troop leaders are Linda Meyers and Daniela Viavattine.

    Love this! That badge wasn’t even around when I was a brownie scout leader for that age group! Kathy
