Butterfly Garden for Silver Awards

Head on over to California's Inland Valley Daily Bulletin and read a story about two Girl Scouts working to improve the conditions at a local shelter that provides temporary housing and assistance to homeless families and their children. To acquire the Girl Scout Silver Award - which is the second highest award in the Girl Scouts - Veronica Osborn, 15, and Camille Goodwin, 13, spent a recent Saturday planting a drought friendly butterfly garden for residents and their children staying in the building. The award requires the girls - who are in Troop 12164 - to complete three projects for the community. The garden was the girls' main project.

Awesome work Veronica and Camille! Do you have stories you'd like to share about your Girl Scout Silver Award Project?
