Bronze Award Spotlight

 In 2018, approximately 356 Girl Scouts earned the Bronze Award in our council. Among them were Troop 40129 of Camas, Washington, who partnered with a local animal shelter to brighten the days of pets waiting to be adopted. The girls visited the shelter to read to cats and dogs, providing much needed socialization that increases the pets’ chance of adoption. Plus, the girls sharpened their reading skills along the way!

Troop 41702 of Forest Grove, Oregon built bat houses and displayed them at local Farmer’s Markets to promote bat conservation. One of the bat houses was even installed and dedicated at Mountaindale Outdoor Program Center!
