The Princeton Girl Scouts Service Unit joined Friends of Princeton Open Space for an Earth Day Celebration at Mountain Lakes Preserve, on April 21. The group honored the holiday with a service project to plant 40 new trees and shrubs along the Preserve’s woods and lake. Afterwards, the girls enjoyed crafts and snacks at the Mountain Lakes House. FOPOS’s naturalist also led them through a nature scavenger hunt in Witherspoon Woods, where they explored the many trees, flowers, and fungi growing in our local environment.
A big thank you to Jean Crider, Elizabeth Monroe, and all the wonderful Girl Scouts for donating their time to bring new life in Mountain Lakes’ forests.
Thank you also to the New Jersey Tree Foundation for providing trees and shrubs, as part of their Celebrate Arbor Day program to plant over 10,000 trees across the state.
