Making News at the Trail
to Trailblazer Christine Parker!
Chris is not only a National Wildlife
Federation Habitat Steward, but has taken her dedication
and love of the outdoors and environment to many levels. As
a long time dedicated employee of Walt Disney World she has
actively been involved with environmental issues within her
organization, and has passionately worked towards educating
both children and adults with various activities at Lake Louisa
State Park and The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail. Recently Chris
received the Disney "Ears to You" Grant for
her volunteer service within the community and then did what
Chris always does.she passed that money on to a local organization
in her community that she knew would value and put it to good
use. The Florida Scrub-Jay Consortium was the recipient of
the $1,000 award. It doesn't get any better
than that. We truly appreciate her generosity and will put
it to good use continuing to work with the generations of tomorrow.
We thank the companies that offer matching
volunteer hours with grants that help organizations
within our communities. Thank you to Walt Disney World, and
all the other corporations that promote volunteerism. And a
big thank you to those of you that take advantage of your organization's
generosity wherever you are in the United States. Volunteer
where you live. You make all the difference in the
world to your communities.

Troop 4700 Visit May 16th
We had a fun visit from Brownie Troop 4700 from South
Lake Charter Elementary School. This group was a fireball.
All energized and ready to make their mark on the world. They
got to see a scrub-jay on the telephone wires and learned all
about the jays and their habitat. After a tour on the trail
discovering gopher tortoise burrows, prickly pear cochineal,
native blueberries and many hugs from the 9 miniature Sicilian
donkeys they created their own native garden along the trail
and promised to check back and care for them.
The girls received a nature "Try-It" -
the Brownie version of the Girl Scout badge.
As usual, it's always fun to have the Brownies
on the Trail.
