Los Gatos Girl Scouts to Clean Vasona

Group to participate Saturday in National Public Lands Day, largest volunteer effort in the country.

Los Gatos Girls Scout Troop 60337 will be among more than 180,000 volunteers expected to clean 2,000 sites across the country Saturday, Sept. 24, as part of National Public Lands Day.

The event is considered the largest single-day volunteer effort for public lands in the United States, according to Amber Taylor, a spokeswoman for the cleanup.

Volunteers in every state will visit their favorite parks, beaches, wildlife preserves or forests and chip in to help improve public places of recreation.

Mira Sharma, with Los Gatos Girl Scout Troop 60337, will perform "general maintenance" work around Vasona Lake County Park.

“Service is built into Girl Scouting at every age level with the goal of creating lifelong stewards of the environment and making the world a better place,” said Dana Allen, communication manager with Girl Scouts of Northern California.

Allen said local Girl Scouts troops are also involved in the organization's environmental initiative, Green By Nature, at www.GirlScoutsNorCal.org.
