It takes many people to pull this event together. April’s sale and auction raised more than $4,200 for the CT Hort Scholarship Fund!
Programs & Events
Every year CT Hort seeks nominations for this prestigious award named in honor of Dr. Gustav Mehlquist. Nominations must be received by April 30.
Wildlife Biologist Brian Hess will talk about bats of the Northeast, their life cycle and migration patterns, the fight against white-nose syndrome and how we can help. Learn how to create a bat-friendly habitat and how to build and where to place a bat house.
Everyone attending will be entered into a drawing to win a Bat House!! (You must be present to win.)
All the landscape displays were well-done and a joy to see, however, one stood out as the CT Hort Best-in-Show.
Our much loved Connecticut Horticultural Society (CT Hort) exists largely due to the help of many volunteers. They are a source of inspiration, knowledge and encouragement which is valued and enjoyed by all of us.
