Girl Scout Daisy Troop 15015 recently met at Hidden Beach Park in Aptos to help with a park cleanup.
Hidden Beach is primarily used by local neighborhood residents — both as a park and a beachfront area. Discussions were made with county officials about the need for the park to receive some TLC. Nine 6-year-old Daisies responded to the call and were willing to serve.
Equipped with vinyl gloves, trash bags and mechanical grabbers, the afternoon started with a talk about being safe. Tips included: using the grabbers to pick up all items, no picking up sharp objects, and always use the gloves.
The girls teamed up in pairs to tackle different sections of the park, and were able to finish the cleanup in two hours later.
