Kendall Prehn is Awarded the Girl Scout Gold Award for Terrell's Island Project

Date: February 22, 2015

The BDMCC would like to thank Kendall Prehn of Oshkosh for all of her hard work and dedication to her project at Terrell's Island!

"Prehn's Gold Award project helped to improve the public's knowledge of Terrell's Island and its environment. Owned by the nonprofit Butte des Morts Conservation Club, the 1,200-acre Terrell's Island consists of cattail marsh and wet meadow and was created in 1964 to assist landowners with shoreline protection.

Her project included planning, fundraising, building three Aldo Leopold benches, adding eight trail posts and creating a tri-fold brochure that tells visitors what they are seeing on the trail, which was constructed in 2013. In addition, Prehn also created a PowerPoint presentation that tells of the island's history and environment.

She personally put in more than 80 hours to complete the project.

Pete Guckenberg of the Butte des Morts Conservation Club served as Prehn's adviser. A member of Girl Scout Troop 2092, she is the daughter of Rob and Denise Prehn."
