Meredith’s Girl Scout Gold Award project focused on preserving the Blackland Prairie, a grassland eco-region with diverse plants and wildlife. Less than 1% of the Prairie remains due to extensive urbanization in North Texas. Over the course of two years, Meredith worked with Connemara Conservancy to create a method to remove invasive grasses and reseed native plants and flowers. Her success will be duplicated by the Conservancy on its remaining 72 acres. She also created a pamphlet now used to educate people about preserving the native Texas eco-region. Meredith is from Girl Scout Troop 603.
