Local Girl Scouts Mackenzie Maddux, Teagan Kanode, Jennifer Yerian, Olivia Messick, Emma Hough, and Tessa Turowski recently met all the requirements to earn their Bronze awards. The Bronze Award is the third-highest award in Girl Scouts.
With a donation from the Home Depot, the group of Buckeye Valley fifth graders built barn owl houses, bluebird houses and duckling hammocks.
The duckling hammocks were donated to the Ohio Wildlife Center to keep injured ducks and ducklings off the ground while recovering. The barn owl houses were also given to the Ohio Wildlife Center to give these threatened owls a place to live. The bluebird houses are being given to the Delaware County Preservation Parks to help make sure that these birds don’t become extinct.
