Girls scouts plant garden to help protect butterflies
SAN ANTONIO - A Girl Scout troupe is working on a project to protect butterflies.
Members of troupe 2120 spent the day planting a garden outside of the Schertz City Hall. The garden serves as a station for endangered monarch butterflies to rejuvenate by getting food and water.
“This is a special butterfly garden because it serves as a monarch way station. There's some plants specifically for monarchs because they are decreasing rapidly in their population," Girl Scout Madison Wright.
This is part of the girl scouts silver award project where they do a 60-hour service project that will leave a lasting impact on the community.
