The Cadettes of Troop 60074 decided to make game wardens (wildlife officers) in the Colorado Parks and Wildlife division one their Hometown Heroes this year! Since most of the game wardens don’t work out of an office, the girls delivered the Girl Scout Cookies as a surprise during their monthly regional staff meeting. The game wardens were so happy to get cookies! Their supervisor told us that no one had ever given them cookies in the 14 years she’d been there! We were so glad the girls chose to give them some cookie love! The game wardens loved them back with goodie bags filled with stuffed animals in Colorado Parks and Wildlife t-shirts, prairie bird identification books, Colorado wildlife identification books, and calendars. It felt so great to pick some Hometown Heroes that don’t get much recognition!
The girls also donated cookies to the park rangers and volunteers at Barr Lake State Park, and the staff at the Colorado Parks and Wildlife SOLE (Schools & Outdoor Learning Environments) program. All these Hometown Heroes were great choices, especially since our troop is busy working on our “Outdoor” Journey!
