Several Girl Scouts and Park Rangers gathered at Black Rock Lake on Sept. 14, to winterize and enhance the native butterfly garden and walking path at the Black Rock Lake in Thomaston, Connecticut.
"This event creates a wonderful opportunity to work with the Girl Scouts in order to enhance and preserve our public lands and resources," said Marissa Wright, NPLD coordinator for Black Rock Lake.
Volunteers rolled up their sleeves at the site to pull weeds, deadhead plantings, and mulch the area.
"The butterfly garden and the field habitat in the area contain native plantings that provide food for butterflies, birds and other wildlife," said Wright.
The Girl Scouts do an extraordinary job each year helping the New England District to maintain the beautiful garden. Black Rock Lake team member Amy Charlton, as well as Wright, assisted the Scouts with the event.
