The Long Hill Garden Club received recognition at the awards luncheon of the Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut recently, for some of the projects it accomplishes in the town.
The Club Certificate of Achievement was earned for developing the Nature Nook at the Children’s room of the Trumbull Library, to increase interest in the natural world. Each quarter the Nook focuses on a different topic, such as backyard birds or pollinators. In the spring there were tadpoles for the children to see and in the summer they are able to watch monarch butterflies develop. Along with the exhibit, there is also a tri-fold display, posters and related children’s activity sheets.
