McCallum Park Beautification

Girl Scout Troop 451 of Vestavia Hills earned the Bronze Award for McCallum Park Beautification project. The 4th and 5th grade girls researched ways to help the park. The Girl Scouts decided to plant several native flowers near the bathroom area and around the park entrance. The troop helped the environment while adding a little beauty to the park. Girl Scouts Emmy, Sarah, Meredith, Gillian, Laura, Slaton and Madison all participated in this project.

The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest award a Girl Scout Junior can earn. This award recognizes that a Girl Scout Junior has gained the leadership and planning skills required to follow through with a project that makes a positive difference in her community.
