Flower Beds at Camp Trico Get Some TLC

Hannah of Troop 10472 in Huntsville identified a need for some TLC for the flower beds at Camp Trico in Guntersville. After cleaning out the overgrown flower beds, Hannah researched what plants would thrive in the conditions at the camp. She recruited help from Girl Scouts in her troop and their parents to help plant a variety of new flowers into the cleaned out beds. Hannah financed the purchase of the flowers and materials with money she raised selling Girl Scout Cookies. Her work and dedication have earned her the Girl Scout Silver Award.
The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. This award symbolizes a Girl Scout Cadette’s accomplishments in Girl Scouting and community activities as she matures and works to better her life and the lives of others.
