Jeweled Acrobats in the Garden

 “Jeweled Acrobats in the Garden” to be Topic of March 12 Garden Club Program in Woodbury

The Pomperaug Valley Garden Club is pleased to present “Jeweled Acrobats in the Garden” by Sally Brockett on Tuesday, March 12, 2024. The program will begin at 11 am at the Woodbury Firehouse, 25 Quassuk Road, Woodbury. Members of the public are welcome to attend for a $5 donation.

Sally Brockett is a local gardener, birder, and a member of the Daytime Gardeners of North Haven. She will present tips on attracting hummingbirds to your yard and will share her experiences with hummingbirds and backyard birding. Enjoy Sally’s photos of a variety of hummingbirds, some seen in the United States and others from Central America.

Brockett has worked in the field of special education as a special education preschool teacher, and more recently as a Berard AIT Instructor/Practitioner in the field of special education. She began seriously identifying birds in the early 1970s simply as a fun hobby. As her list of “life” birds grew, her interest in finding some uncommon and rare birds increased. Of course, this meant traveling to new areas to find birds that are not local to New England.
