While summer might be the most popular season to go camping for many scouts, Girl Scout troops from the Prairie Rose Service Unit have been keeping busy working on badge and award requirements.
Junior Girl Scouts from troops 17277, 17530 and 17289 visited Stephen F. Austin State Park in June and met with Ranger Ben Horstmann and worked on requirements to earn their Earth Connections badge. They went on a nature hike where they identified several species of plants native to Texas, played games where they learned about food chains and conservation, and learned about ecological succession and conservation. The troops also plan on participating in a bird watching survey for Cornell University.
Nine junior Girl Scouts of Troop 17232 recently earned their Bronze Awards by delivering more than 75 “Going Home” bags to Fort Bend County’s Rainbow Room. The bags contained necessities such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes and brushes as well as puzzles, a toy, a fleece blanket and scarf (sewn by the girls). The girls also created the puzzles, puzzle books and made mask kits the kids could put together themselves. Some of the bagged items were donated by troop members, others were donated from the community, but most of it was purchased with all of the troop’s proceeds from the Fall Product sales. The Rainbow Room facilitates basic needs for families in crisis. Troop 17232 is a member of the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council, Prairie Rose Service Unit.
Troop 63812 of the Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council, Prairie Rose Service Unit completed their Silver Award by helping C.A.P.S. They visited the shelter and received a tour. The girls collected food, kitty litter, newspapers and old towels. They also made specialty items such as adoptee bandanas and kitty feather toys. The troop would like to thank Pet Smart on Market Place for their support in discounting their supplies. They then bridged with their pets in Grand Lakes and received their Bronze Award Pins.
