Description Of Activity

Friends of Harkness Memorial State Park
Waterford, CT

Promoting conservation and preservation of critical plant or animal habitats and voluntarily contributing significant time or resources to environmental instructional programs.

The Harkness Lily Project is their newest effort to continue making the gardens look their best. The Friends of Harkness Memorial State Park purchased 72 exotic varieties of Day Lilies with such exciting names as Chicago Fire Cracker, Chicago Flapper and Picoted Promise. The lilies were diligently planted and surrounded by specially designed deer fencing. For Mother's Day 2008, 165 lilies were divided, potted and sold during their annual plant sale. The lilies will be promulgated in perpetuity.
