Phase one of construction is beginning to take place on the Catherine Violet Hubbard Animal Sanctuary.  The Old Farm Road property is getting a retaining wall, which doubles as a native butterfly garden. The foundation, dedicated to a girl killed on 12-14, is working with Planters Choice to create a minimal carbon footprint for the production of all the plant species by ensuring they are locally sourced.  Partnerships with the Connecticut Butterfly Association, Monarch Watch and Mission Monarch means the garden, to be named Monarch Waystation, will be considered a Monarch Sanctuary.  Erosion control measures on the property are also under way.  Phase one is expected to be completed this summer.
