NGC Inc. Presidents Project/theme
Sandra Robinson, NGC Inc. president’s theme is
“Leap into Action”
Pollinators and amphibians are “the canaries in the mine”, crying out a warning that all is not well. We need to heed their cry and “Leap into Action” before our food sources are severely threatened through the loss of vital species.
We are actively engaging our membership and the general public in this endeavor through the Million Garden Challenge partnership with National Wildlife Federation (NWF) Monarch Watch, Morth American Butterfly Association (NABA), and The Center for Plant Conservation. In addition, we offer educational programs and resources for the youth, including publication of The Frightened Frog, An Environmental Tale.
Details regarding projects and monetary awards will be printed on the NGC website. www.gardenclub.org
