Girls from Troop 40936 from the Phelps area wanted to raise awareness about nature so people would help to protect it. So when they decided to work on their Girl Scout Silver Award they decided to encase informational posters in plexiglass and mount them on boulders along the Ontario Pathways in Phelps.
The Girl Scout Silver Award is the highest award Girl Scouts in grades 6 through 8 can earn. To earn the award girls complete a Girl Scout Cadette Journey, the essence of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, gain leadership skills and then spend at least 50 hours working on a project that provides a positive lasting impact on the community.
