For Grace Breshears Gold Award project, she wanted to raise awareness of the Leave No Trace (LNT) principles that center around leaving less of a footprint when in the outdoors. During her project, she built a total of 14 benches along the Hickory Trail at Kiwanis and the Green Trail, the longest trail, at Scoutshire Woods. Beside each bench is one of seven signs that gives information about the LNT principle for that bench as well as discussion questions and a game or song to go along with that principle.
Girl Scouts are invited to follow Grace's activity sheets to earn their Leave No Trace patch. They can also watch Grace's video to get a general overview of each principle along with the hand sign to go with it.
Thank you Grace for helping us learn how to protect our environment!
