For everyone who enjoys being able to spend time at beautiful places/gardens, the Shelton gardens are in need of volunteers to assist staff with regular upkeep.  Shelton has the Eklund Gardens and the gardens at the Shelton Dog Park along the city’s trails. The staff, who are in charge of managing the city’s gardens, are in search of people who are gardening lovers or novices who want to learn more about building and maintaining gardens.

The Eklund Native Species Garden is administered by Teresa Gallagher and she can be reached through email sheltontrails@gmail.com. The Dog Park Gardens are managed by Allison Knick-Menendez and she can also be reached through email akmenendez@snet.net.
