From the Brunswick Post, article by Melissa Martin
Brunswick Girl Scout Troop 90502 and their families are back at it again! This time, the girls and their loved ones removed three, full-size garbage bags packed with trash and litter from the Brunswick Lake and the trail surrounding it in honor of World Thinking Day and to help further the Brunswick Stream Team coalition’s efforts.
Celebrated every year on Feb. 22 since 1926, World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship, speaking out on issues that affect girls and young women, and fundraising for the millions of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world.
“Our girls also removed a large inner tube from the lake — they found it came in handy for an awesome photo opportunity,” said Larissa Kosar, troop leader. “Before I could even suggest it, they were already posing for their photo shoot!”
The girls of Troop 90502 plan to follow-up their trash pick-up with other efforts throughout this week that promote World Thinking Day.
“We have at-home recycling bins and happiness journals in the works, along with research and plans to use the four planting spaces we maintain for the city of Brunswick in the warmer months as safe havens that will attract pollinators like honeybees and butterflies,” Kosar said. “Our girls are using the fun facts they’ve learned through earning their Legacy Bug Badge to make the most of our planting areas this coming spring and summer.”
