Garden club youth, Girl Scouts create nature projects
The Parkland Garden Youth Club’s goal is to promote an interest and love of nature in youth.
Debbie Barhight is chairwoman of the youth club which currently has teamed up with Girl Scout Troop 6142.
The club was busy this past winter with nature related projects.
The girls pressed flowers and leaves and let them dry for several weeks. Afterward, they created decoupaged glass jar luminaries.
They also made pine cone bird feeders, floral greetings and thank-you cards that were sent to residents and staff of Phoebe Home, Allentown.
Club members also participated in the yearly backyard bird count done by the Lehigh Gap Nature Center over Presidents Day weekend.
