Troop 1386 Completes Bronze Award Project

Junior Girl Scout Troop 1386 thumbnail247292

Washington Street School students in Junior Girl Scout Troop 1386 recently completed a project as part of their Bronze Award journey.

For the past two years, the troop has been dedicated to learning about and raising awareness of the importance of ocean conservation. Some of the activities and learning experiences they have participated in include visits to the Coast Guard, Operation Splash and the Jones Beach Nature and Energy Center, as well as beach clean-ups with both the Town of Hempstead and the City of Long Beach. The troop also raised over $1,000 through a recycling drive and a garage sale; all of which they donated to Operation Splash in Freeport to help pay for fuel for their boats.

The students have created an online guide on ocean conservation as the culmination of all they have learned from their experiences. The troop’s goal is to inspire action and foster a sense of responsibility towards our oceans and the environment.

Congratulations to all who worked on this project!
