Los Altos Junior Girl Scout Troop 61015 focused on ocean pollution for our Bronze Award Project. The Bronze Award is the highest recognition a Junior Girl Scout can earn. We are trying to raise awareness about ocean pollution and how it harms the animals that live in and near the ocean.

During February and March, we cleaned up many beaches, including Half Moon Bay, San Gregorio, Davenport and Seacliff. Over spring break, some of us cleaned up local creeks that lead to San Francisco Bay in addition to the beaches we visited in Hawaii.
