Since 1997, Sasqua Garden Club and the Read School in Bridgeport have partnered together each year to provide two wonderful programs for the third graders. In November members assist students in creating stunning Thanksgiving arrangements that they bring home and proudly display. Children select their flowers and then create unique and special pieces for their families. The children truly love this morning.
In late Spring, the Connecticut Audubon, sponsored by Sasqua GC, presents an in-school “Birds of Prey” educational program. The children enjoy learning about, and interacting with live barn owls, screech owls, hawks, and falcons. It is a special day for the children as it is one of few in-school field trips they participate in during the third grade at their school.
