Girl Scout Gold Award Fairy House Demonstration Day

Ambassador Girl Scout Analise Black is working on her Gold Award, which is the highest level achievable and equivalent to the Boy Scout’s Eagle Scout designation. Her project focuses on the decrease in the use of the imagination in elementary-school-aged children due to the prevalence of screen time/technology in their lives.

Black’s goal is to provide families with ways to use their imagination. As part of her Gold Award project, she is creating a Fairy House Trail at the Cherokee Recreation and Parks Agency’s Lewis Park. The trail includes one special area where children and their families can use their imaginations to create miniature fairy houses, constructed with any fallen/dead natural materials (no man-made materials to protect the environment).

Black hopes that community use of the Fairy House Trail will also help increase children’s physical activity while stimulating their imaginations. She is holding a public demonstration on how to construct fairy houses on August 10, 10:00am-12:00pm (rain date is August 24) at Lewis Park, which is located at 200 East Bells Ferry Road in Woodstock.
