Gold Award Recipient’s Butterfly Project Featured in Pioneer Press

blog-gold-award-butterfly-projectGirl Scouts River Valleys’ Gold Award recipient, Andrea Rustad, was featured in the Twin Cities Pioneer Press this weekend for her project, “Feed and Flutter: Promoting Monarch Habitats” that addressed the declining number of monarchs by working to preserve monarch butterfly habitats and help her city of Stillwater, MN establish pollinator-safe policies.

We look forward to honoring Rustad, along with 69 other Gold Award recipients and 345 Silver Award recipients, at our Higher Award Ceremonies this month.

    Hello! We would like to be in touch with Andrea Rustad if possible. We have hundreds of milkweed seed packets leftover from an event last week that we would like to donate to her project. Might someone be able to put me in touch with her?
