More than 130 Girl Scouts from across St. Louis City and County will flock to Willmore Park on October 22 for a morning of community service. Girl Scouts in kindergarten through 12th grade will join other volunteers to help clean up creeks, streams and trails along the River des Peres Watershed as part of the 14th Annual River des Peres Trash Bash.
In 2015, girls and adult volunteers in eastern Missouri tallied nearly 1 million hours of community service through service projects and events like the Trash Bash. Community service is an integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, providing girls with an opportunity to practice teamwork, build critical thinking skills and empowering them to make changes in their community.
