Girl Scouts honored

Posted: Friday, March 08, 2002

The Coastal America Partnership Award Ceremony recognized the Girl Scout Rehabilitation Station Program Team on Feb. 5, 2002, in a ceremony at the Egan Convention Center in Anchorage. William T. Hogarth, Assistant Administrator for Fisheries at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, was the awarding official.

The National Marine Fisheries Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Girls Scouts of Troop 760 Susitna Council formed a partnership to promote sound marine conservation and education for young people in cooperation with the Alaska Sea Life Center. The partnership has developed a program that involves a series of workshops for Girl Scouts. The workshops focus on raising the awareness of critical coastal issues, the scientific methods being used to study these issues, career opportunities and funding issues as they relate to restoration and rehabilitation of these resources.
