Here’s your chance to create, enhance and maintain wildlife habitat in the park using native plants. We’ve been restoring dunes in the East Beach since 2017, planted a Pollinator Garden in front of the Nature Center, added native plants at the park entrance, and are curating the Three Sisters Garden located behind the Nature Center. The team raises all the funds it needs each year on Fairfield County Giving Day. Our mission is to create, enhance and maintain wildlife habitat in the park using native plants.

In 2018 the team captain became a UCONN certified Master Gardener and in 2019 recruited Master Gardener interns to join other volunteers meeting year-round once a week in the winter and 2-4 times per week from spring through fall.  We also work with school and Scout groups by appointment.

For 2021 we are meeting every Sunday from 2-4 PM at the Three Sisters Garden for mini-lessons. We also meet Tuesdays and Fridays for two hours each day.
