Boyle County Public Library
The Garden Club of Danville
Members of the club, which is a local sponsor of the Smokey the Bear and Woodsy Owl Contest, met at the library with Smokey the Bear. The contest, a partnership between the U.S. Forest Service and the National Garden Clubs Inc., calls on students in first through fifth grades to demonstrate through original drawings the messages of Smokey Bear (“Only YOU Can Prevent Wildfires”) and Woodsy Owl (“Lend a Hand – Care for the Land”).
In 2013, a Monarch Waystation was created by the Garden Club of Kentucky on the Broadway side of the Library. Monarch Waystations are habitats that provide resources necessary for monarch butterflies to produce successive generations and sustain their migration. Monarch Waystations are filled with a variety of plants that attract monarchs, most notably milkweed.
Memorial book gifts are sometimes made by the club. Club members provide flower arrangements for National Garden Week and other special occassions.
