The Garden Club of America's Elizabeth Abernathy Hull Award annually recognizes the outstanding achievements of individuals furthering the early environmental education of children. Established in 1992, the Hull Award recognizes chosen recipients who honor Miss Hull's common sense approach to environmental awareness by inspiring children under 16 to appreciate the beauty and fragility of our planet.
A woman ahead of her time, Miss Hull (1900–1996) was an active member of the Ridgefield Garden Club and credited her mother and grandmother with instilling her own passion for the environment.
The 2014 Garden Club of America's Elizabeth Abernathy Hull Award was recently given to Houston Audubon's own Mary Anne Weber, Houston Audubon Education Director, at the Garden Club of Houston's Annual Luncheon. Garden Club member and Houston Audubon board member Doris Heard nominated Mary Anne last year. Please join us in congratulating Mary Anne on a most deserving award! [More]
