PITTSFIELD -- Second- and third-grade girls are invited to a special Girl Scout bug program from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25, at the Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts' central Berkshire camp, Camp Marion White.
Girls will be able to view hissing cockroaches courtesy of CatsEye Pest Control and ask questions about bugs with a CatsEye specialist. In addition, there will be discussion about the potential problems surrounding the Asian Longhorned Beetle and the danger of ticks. A special bug craft and bug-inspired snack also will be included. The activities will complete some of the requirements for the Girl Scout Brownie bug badge.
The cost of the program is $6 for girls who are not currently registered as a Girl Scout. Current Girl Scouts are welcome to attend for $3 but they must bring a non-Girl Scout buddy. Information about new troop options will be available at the program.
For more information on the event and to register, contact Girl Scout membership development specialist Rebecca Dravis at 413-588-2071 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
