Cadette Girl Scout, Kali Spelts, has earned her Silver Award. Kali worked with Rangers Travis Vincent and Alex Collins from Del Valle Regional Preserve. Kali loves the parks and backpacking and wanted to do something to help out the park system. After researching about barn owls and their habitats she learned how much benefit the barn owls provide with rodent control to the park ecosystem. She built three owl boxes and had her troop build one so they would learn more about her project and earn their Woodworking badges. Kali did all the building using several power tools with her Dad's supervision. She brought her four owl boxes for installation to Lake Del Valle. Her owl boxes will serve many owl families over the coming years!
