Troop 2119 went exploring!

This summer, Troop 2119 from Camden, North Carolina traveled to Camp Sacajawea in Lynchburg Virginia and used their incredible experience as an opportunity to learn more about the area's wildlife and environment. 

The girls participated in nature hikes, explored the mountains and learned about the historical sites near Appomattox. During their time at Sacajawea, they developed a better understanding of the importance of water quality and the way dissolved oxygen, pH, and turbidity benefit the survival of wildlife. 

The girls also planted herbs in the community garden to act as a natural pest repellent. Troop 2119 hope to use their experience and new knowledge to better aid their community’s resources.
