Local Girl Scouts Clean Up Galveston's Beach
Girl Scout troops #19100 and #19009 from San Jacinto Council joined Galveston’s General Land Office for Texas’ Beach Clean Up Day. After several months of beachgoers enjoying the sandy fun of Galveston’s beaches, debris and trash had started to compete with the beautiful view.
Therefore, twice a year, Galveston’s citizens and interested parties join together to collect trash along the entire Texas coastal line. Recently, 16 Junior Girl Scouts from southwest Houston were assigned a stretch of land to clean. “Not only did we clean the beach but we also filled out data cards to identify what types of litter are most common in certain areas,” said Girl Scout Sarah from Troop #19009. “The beach looked great when we were done.”
