We're celebrating the 2016 Olympics by showing love to the women proudly representing Team USA in Rio and the outstanding Girl Scouts who earned gold right here in Central Texas!
Whether it’s the Gold Award or an Olympic gold medal, you need resilience, perseverance, dedication and a strong will to make it happen just like U.S. Golfer Lexi Thompson and GSCTX Gold Julie M.
For her Gold Award project, Keep Austin Native, Julie built 30 Mason Bee houses to help curb the rapid decline of the bee population in Central Texas. She partnered with the City of Austin, community gardens, and schools to install the bee houses. She also created curriculum for elementary students with the objective of teaching them about bees and included instructions for them on how to make their own bee houses.
