Hitting the Trails
Giving back to the community is one of the things Rye Brownie Troop 1601 enjoys most. The girls, all second graders at Osborn Elementary, made it their mission this fall to donate goods to three local sites.
Last month they visited the Marshlands Conservancy, bringing tools for maintaining the trails. They also took the opportunity to learn how animals use the 151-acre wildlife sanctuary as their home base and as a refueling station on long-distance journeys. Wild turkey feathers and fiddler crabs were just two of the troop’s finds!
Their next two stops are Rye Nature Center and the Carver Center.
