Central Region Unified Project (NGC Award of Excellence #25)

  • The Central Region theme “Cultivating Connections” focuses on individual member clubs, districts and state federations working together on projects, especially those sponsored by NGC incorporating the NGC, CR and state logos into all signage and publicity. This includes flyers, website announcements, programs, business cards, event signage, etc.
  • Events may include promoting the Bee Gap Program, Pollinators, Monarch Watch, The Frightened Frog book activities, Bee a Wildlife Action Hero and Leap into Leadership. (Visit nationalgardenclub.org for more information on these NGC President’s Projects.) A project related to a local concern, involving one or more natural resources is especially important.
