Congratulations to the girls from Girl Scout Troop 13077, completing their Girl Scout Silver Award this past year! There are 7 girls in Troop 13077 that renovated the Keyauwee Nature Center Area to make a more appealing place for both troops and guests who visit the summer camp to learn, explore, create, and have fun! The girls worked in different areas around the Nature Center to bring it back to life, as well as creating new traditional ways to enjoy nature. Here’s a description of what the girls did!
Isabella (Bella) Siler: Established a new Bee Apiary near the Nature Center. She also created an information board so that others can learn about bees and their importance to our lives.
Norah Parrish: Worked in the garden area, clearing it out and planting. She did an herb/medicinal garden, vegetables, flowers to help with pollination, and a fairy garden.
Taylor Gall: Worked in the garden area, clearing it out and planting. She planted vegetables to go to the barn and then created a pollinator area, which has now become a certified Monarch Way Station. A groundhog (Dugz) created lots of havoc for both girls as he thought the garden was for his personal use.
Olivia Ervin: Worked in the front room, cleaning and transforming the room to be a more vibrant learning space. She helped with cataloging the supplies that were there and created a wish list that was shared with the Service Unit to help increase the supplies.
Madison (Maddie) Varner: Worked in the front room, cleaning and transforming the room to be a more vibrant learning space. She helped with cataloging the supplies that were there and creating a more organized space for everything.
Katie Dickens: Worked in the backroom, cleaning, painting, and organizing everything. This is now a bright and colorful learning environment. She kept the two wall murals that were there and incorporated new learning opportunities for all.
Emma Tellez: Worked with repairing and updating the fence around the garden and built a new gate to be able to enter the area. She also painted the chairs to make them more vibrant and to go with the overall make-over of the Nature Center area.
