Girl Scout Beautifies Park Trails
One of the birdhouses assembled, painted and installed by Deanna Conforti By Deanna Conforti
As a Girl Scout of 10 years, I have completed many commu- nity service projects, from cooking meals for SHIP to sewing quilts for babies in children’s hospitals. For my gold award, I strived for a project that would benefit my community and directly affect my hometown.
I met with Branchburg Recre- ation Director Glenn Burrell and learned the town wanted to im- prove Stala Park in Neshanic Sta- tion, but due to budget constraints, the only improvement to this space was a nature trail.
To add to the park, I assembled, painted and installed bird houses
around the trail. In doing so, I hoped to attract more birds to the nature trail so that the people in the community would be able to enjoy their beauty. I hope that the people in the town can see the bird houses in the park and want to utilize this space that our community has provided for us, whether to take a walk with their friends and family through the trail or to just enjoy the nature of our town on their own.
This project has allowed me to give back to my community and has given me a sense of accom- plishment knowing I was able to help out.
