Use Resources Wisely
Daisies will discover what it means to recycle and why it's important! They will learn how they can recycle things in their own neighborhood, how nature recycles, and how they can cut down on garbage. Each scout will make and bring home a flower seed planted in a small pot made of biodegradable materials. Seeds can be watered with recycled rain water.
