At the State Garden Club of Georgia meeting in April, the WGC won six awards.

One special award was the Award of Merit, which is the highest nonmember award offered by the Garden Club of Georgia. This year, this was awarded to Steve (pictured at left) and Sharon Scruggs for their outstanding work in the management of the David Henry Hardigree Wildlife Sanctuary and Research Center, which is located on Old Greensboro Road, .4 mile outside Watkinsville. 

Watkinsville Garden Club is a member of the Hardigree Wildlife Sanctuary and provides funds and volunteers for its activities.
