WHO: Bronze Award Girl Scouts Abby, Gracie, and Sylvia from Troop 10239 in New Castle
WHAT: Bronze Award Girl Scouts Abby, Gracie, and Sylvia from Troop 10239 in New Castle will install two fishing line recycling bins, along with three permanent signs, at Alder Park. The girls both built the recycling bins and designed the signs as a way to educate their community about the importance of the animal species, wetlands, and human impact on the park’s pond.

This project was part of the Girl Scouts’ efforts to earn the Bronze Award, the highest honor for Girl Scouts in fourth and fifth grades. When Girl Scout Juniors earn the Bronze Award, they team up to make a difference in their community, learning important leadership skills, discovering new passions, and seeing first-hand how seemingly small actions make a big difference.
WHEN: April 11 at 3 p.m. This event will include less than 25 people and will follow all local COVID-19 guidelines.
WHERE: Alder Park (850 Alder Ave. New Castle 81647)
WHY: Girl Scouts of Colorado is 30,000 strong—more than 20,000 girls and 10,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Ga., she organized the very first Girl Scout troop and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
