CreekCleaning Troop 4904

The water flowing into Bachman Lake is a little cleaner thanks to a crew of ambitious fourth graders.

Earlier this month, members of Lamplighter Junior Girl Scout Troop 4904 spent the day cleaning their school’s creek. The debris they collected filled more than five trash bags.

“Learning about water pollution was the first unit for the Troop, but the girls have more ways they are planning to give back,” Laura Trubey, mother of one of the scouts, says.

Next up, they plan to education their classmates on hunger and brainstorm ways to combat the problem in Dallas County.
