Junior Girl Scouts from troop 4185 recently went batty while completing their Bronze Award project — the highest award achieved by Junior Girl Scouts. The project the girls chose was to build bat boxes to help endangered species in the community. The completed boxes now reside in the Cuyamaca Water Conservation Garden. To celebrate the new addition — and as a nod to Halloween — the Cuyamaca Conservation Garden is holding a family-friendly and educational event on bats called “Ms. Smarty-Plants Goes Batty” on Oct. 12 from 5:30–8 p.m. at 12122 Cuyamaca College Drive, El Cajon.
