Hoover High School junior Kara Gabrielle Brinkman recently earned the Girl Scout Gold Award. Brinkman created butterfly gardens at Riverchase Elementary and Hoover High Schools over an 18-month period in an effort to provide hands-on learning opportunities.
In addition to planning and caring for the gardens, the Hoover varsity cheerleader created informational booklets that describe ways to plant for native butterflies. The booklets also outline activities for the students to participate in within the gardens.
