Visitors to the Trail

A visit from Eliza Russell, Director of Education Programs for National Wildlife Federation


Eliza came in for a "Tour of Florida" and a workshop in Broward County designed to "teach the teachers" about the wildlife education programs available through NWF.
Her tour brought her to the Scrub-Jay Trail for a visit and planning session. She enjoyed the respite from a busy itinerary that took her from south Florida to the Panhandle and back again. For information about NWF education programs, visit  www.nwf.org

A visit from Alex Shore with Broward County's Environmental Protection and
Growth Management Department

Alex came up to see the Trail. Broward is extremely active in the National Wildlife Federation Habitat Stewards program, Community Wildlife Habitat, and wildlife education programs in the school system. It was great to hear of the work they are doing in Broward County.
Check their website at  www.broward.org > Go Green for an overview of their commitment to saving the environment.

Craig Tufts Pollinator Garden Dedication
This garden is the result of a lot of hard work by the Scrub-Jay Trailblazers and volunteers.

Jean Tufts

On Saturday, September 18, a ribbon cutting was held to officially open the garden. The garden is dedicated to Craig Tufts, Chief Naturalist for the National Wildlife Federation who passed away in June 2009.

Jean Tufts, Craig's wife, participated in the ceremony and was very impressed by the volunteer effort that takes place here at the Trail.

Joining Jean on her visit was Kelly Senser, Senior Associate Editor with NWF, who has been very supportive on the Scrub-Jay Trail. More photos to come.
