Alexandria Girl Scout Troop 4143 tried to protect bee populations by creating a pollinator garden.
Alexandria Girl Scout Troop 4143 created a pollinator garden as its service project to bolster the declining national bee population and to honor the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts. The troop hopes to slow the decline of the bee population since bees are the primary pollinators of most plants. The troop is led by Dawn Bingman and Gretchen Steenstra. Members include Alison, Cori, Eliza, Grace, Gwen, Isra, Jenna, Katie, Kayleigh, Marley, Mica, Priya, Reagan, Sarah Katherine, Savannah, Skylar, Sophia and Sophie.
