Making a difference for birds in Milton, VT

Girl Scout Junior Troop 30393 in Milton, VT, has been working this year on a plan to build birdhouses to install in their town forest. They have talked to the Audubon and have taken birdwatching hikes in Chittenden County, and visited VINS down in Quechee. They visited the new nature walk and spoke to aviary experts who provided different birdhouse plans and showed the girls the key parts of the birdhouse and why they're important.

A detective from Burlington Police Department met with the troop so the girls could learn how to do internet searches safely. After that, each girl researched several birds that were threatened or declining in Vermont. They decided which birds to build homes for and where they needed to put the birdhouses.

The girls then visited the town office and met with the town manager, and talked to him about next steps. On January 21 they presented their plan to the Selectboard and were approved. Pictured are some of the troop (not all could make it) with the Selectboard members after the presentation.

Scarves in the park

Daisy Girl Scout Troop 10920 and Junior Troop 12263 from Manchester, NH, left scarves, hats, gloves and hand warmers that they collected from family and friends and left them at Veterans Park on Elm Street on Jan. 22. This is an annual project for these Girl Scouts. Afterwards, they walked over to Portland Pie company and warmed up with some hot cocoa.
