Geocache Description:

This cache is located in the Caroline Black Gardens in New London, CT. Original contents include a FTF prize as well as a clone of the Chain Reaction TB with FTF pin provided by the TB's owner.

The Connecticut College Arboretum website describes the CBG as follows: "The Caroline Black Garden is distinctive among the Arboretum plant collections. It includes native and exotic species as well as some very unusual cultivars. It currently contains 187 different woody taxa,which makes visiting the garden a rewarding experience throughout the year. In autumn, the entry beds are striking with their ornamental grasses and late blooming plants. Many mature evergreen specimens make it lovely in winter, and the garden is literally ablaze with flowers in spring. Summer blooming plants include colorful Azaleas and the Sourwood (Oxydendrum arborea) tree."In 2001, The Caroline Black Garden was dedicated as a member garden in the international organization, Gardens for Peace. This not-for-profit organization seeks to promote and achieve peace in the world "through the universal language of gardens.Enjoy these gardens in all seasons!3/31/04: I decided to add these directions for parking after reading many of the recent logs.
