...Bring May Flowers! Just in time for the Girl Scouts Troop to complete their Flower Badge on a beautiful Sunday in May at the Bucktoe Creek Preserve. Each scout created a botanist notebook made from recycled paper, which was used to record five different flowers on the preserve. They used magnifying glasses to see up close and record/sketch different segments of the flower, and also recorded the scent and any other observations, such as pollinators in the area or location.

After filling up the notebooks, one of TLC's Pennsylvania Master Naturalist helped the girls create a natural flower terrarium which shows the different layers necessary for flower production.
