A fun presentation about Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep, presented by the Bronze Award Team of Girl Scout Troop 580 (Kaiha, Sage, Lucy, Katherine and Ellie) in partnership with the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation. There will be real bighorn sheep artifacts, a scavenger hunt, photo booth, art, snacks and more!
Project Bighorn was created by the Bronze Award Team of Girl Scout Troop 580 from Mammoth Lakes, CA. The intent is to raise awareness of the endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep (SNBS) through education, art and media.
The Girl Scout Bronze Award is the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. As the girls from Troop 580 began the Outdoor Journey that is a part of the Bronze Award process, they tackled the Animal Habitats badge. In doing so, they learned about the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation and were introduced to Virginia “Ginnie” Chadwick, Ph.D, who's primary function at the foundation is education and outreach.
Ginnie's bighorn sheep program inspired the girls so much the Bronze Award team decided they would make it part of their mission to educate the students and community of Mammoth Lakes on this incredible species and what they can do to help preserve its place in the wild.
