BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A local student has braved nature and the pandemic to reach the heights of the Boy Scouts, but this scout isn’t a boy.

Meyer won her recognition with a massive project, building a camping area and trail for the Tejon Ranch Conservancy in Caliente.

She cleared brush and rocks, installed a metal cattle gate, picnic tables for people to eat, and a firepit among other feats.
