Girl Scout Nature Program

by Catherine Johnson

The Girl Scout Nature Program hosted by our Master Naturalist group in May was a great success, with 23 people attending.  The scouts kept Lisa Milewski and Donna Lewis busy with questions.

Donna Lewis makes a point. Get it?

Master Naturalists Dorothy Mayer and Pamela Neeley also participated in the program. 

Everyone had refreshments and toured the Milam Wildscape and Bird and Bee Farm.  They got to see newly hatched Rio Grande Turkeys.  We were thrilled when the older scouts requested to create projects in the Wildscape. 

After this success, we plan to offer  all Milam County Girl Scout troops programs like this.
