Ramsey City Council Recognizes Girl Scout Troop 16479 with Community Spotlight Award

The Ramsey City Council recognized Girl Scout Troop 16479 with a Community Spotlight Award at the Council meeting on August 8, 2017, for their efforts to support pollinators in our parks and make a difference in the Ramsey community.

The Girl Scouts first learned about the City’s initiative to help create, restore, and protect pollinator habitat in March, 2017 when they took an Art in the Park class, hosted by Ramsey Parks & Recreation, dedicated to decorating mosaic bee houses.
The Troop then installed these bee houses throughout Ramsey at Elmcrest Park, Central Park, Emerald Park and Alpine Park.

The work these girls have done to create and install the bee houses not only supports the City’s mission to protect important pollinators, like bees, in our community, but also allowed them to achieve their Junior Bronze Service Award. The Girl Scout Bronze Service Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve.  Congratulations!
