Photo: Planting at the museum

Posted: Tuesday, June 08, 2010

Landscape Alaska's Margaret Tharp helps Sophie Harvey, 6, with planting a columbine in a small garden at the Alaska State Museum on Saturday. With a grant from the National Park Foundation, Girl Scout Troop 4035 of Juneau was helping design and plant a garden made up of native plants that could be seen in Glacier Bay National Park. Most visitors see Glacier Bay only from the water and the garden, found on the north side of the museum, will show a variety of native plants. The girls will finish their project with a trip to Glacier Bay.
