On Monday, April 6, the Wellington Garden Club welcomed Ashley Hill and Martha Roesler of the Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF) in Key Largo.
Hill and Roesler presented an overview of the work being done by CRF, a nonprofit conservation organization dedicated to creating off-shore nurseries and restoration programs for threatened coral species.
The coral reef restoration effort has been embraced by the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs and furthers the Wellington Garden Club’s mission to conserve natural resources and protect the environment.
During the past two years, members have donated their loose change at the club’s monthly meetings toward the work being done by CRF. At the conclusion of this month’s meeting, President Twig Morris presented a check to CRF for $400 representing the members’ donations.
