Learning through Nature
Everest’s American Heritage Girls club continues to grow as young women of integrity. The American Heritage Girls Badge Program provides opportunities for girls to achieve new skills. Each badge can be earned at three different levels (Tenderheart, Explorer, and Pioneer/Patriot) and is divided into six Frontiers: Our Heritage, Personal Well-Being, Family Living, The Arts, Science and Technology, and Outdoor Skills
During their most recent meeting, the American Heritage Girls began working on their nature and wildlife badge through study about native animals to Michigan. Yesterday the troop hiked through Everest’s 90 acres and observed animal tracks from deer, turkeys, raccoons, and coyotes. A wild turkey even was seen running from the giggling girls.
