Nature Center and Trail Launched

The GARD Center officially opened its Nature Center and Nature Trail on Thursday, 24 April 2014, to its Board Members and Staff.
The brief Ceremony was opened in prayer by Rev. Patmore Henry, Secretary, Methodist Conference and the blessing of the site offered by Rev. Otto Wade, President, Methodist Conference and GARD Center’s Chairman of the Board.
Following, those present were taken on a tour of the Discovery Corner and then walked the shorter part of the three mile trail.  The journey of the one-mile trail was quite refreshing in the morning as we observed various plant species and a functioning water tower built during the 1800s.
