Award project to bloom at library garden


Christina Stuck, a senior at Royal High School and a 13-year member of Girl Scout Troop 60668, is host­ing a free public event from 1 to 3 p.m. Sat., May 11 in the Discovery Garden at Simi Valley Public Li­brary, 2969 Tapo Canyon Road, Simi Valley.

The entrance to the garden is at the end of the children’s section.

The event is the culmination of Christina’s Girl Scout Gold Award project. To earn the award, she has worked on improving the garden for the benefit of all visitors, butterflies and humans alike.

Her goal is to raise awareness about the importance of California native plants and pollinators and what they need to thrive. The Gold Award is the highest award a Girl Scout can earn; only 5% of all Girl Scouts attain it.

Participants will learn how to incorporate native plants into their landscapes, and will have the op­portunity to make wildflower seed bombs to take home. The event is open to all ages.
