Be a Bay Backer with the Girls Scouts
Location: Bass Pro Shops
On Saturday, September 22, I attended an outreach event for the “Be a Bay Backer Fund” at Bass Pro Shops, Arundel Mills. The “Be a Bay Backer Fund” was started as an aquarium exhibit and kiosk with the opening of the Bass Pro Shops store in Arundel Mills in about 2001. This was intended as a fundraiser for Bay Restoration with the Conservation Fund and the Chesapeake Challenge. Two of the original partners in the fund were Chesapeake Bay Foundation and National Fish and Wildlife Federation. I attended the event as a representative for DNR and MARI with MARI Partner, Tony Friedrich, Executive Director of CCA. Girl Scout Troop 205 (Howard County/Columbia) collected donations for the “Be a Bay Backer” Restoration Fund. The scouts presented the donation to Tony Frederick of the CCA. All the girls in the scout troop received a Bronze Award for this fundraising effort.
