Troop 44097 of Colorado Springs earns Bronze Award

girls and bench day 1

Submitted by Carrie Berry

Colorado Springs

Pikes Peak

Most of our troop has been together since they joined Girl Scouts as Daisies in kindergarten at Discovery Canyon Campus. We wanted our project to be a lasting legacy to our school. We came to our principal with several ideas and she approved an outdoor bench, flagstone patio and wildflower garden. They were to be located near the new portable buildings which could use some beautification. We used our cookie profits to purchase wildflower seeds, a red bench and a plaque. The flagstone and concrete pad were donated.

We met after school and used shovels to clear the area of grass and weeds then raked it level. Laying the flagstone was like a puzzle! When the work was complete we drew a landscape picture of the magnificent view of Pikes Peak from the bench and had snacks. Students for years to come will enjoy this area for small group study, independent reading or art inspiration.
