College of Charleston Graduate Students Help Conservancy Beautify Cannon Park

The College of Charleston Graduate Student Association has selected the Charleston Parks Conservancy as their 2011 Adopt an Organization project.  As part of their service, they will be working with the Conservancy to engage the neighborhood and plant the large bed in Cannon Park behind the columns, The Old Museum garden. This is the second phase of the Conservancy’s work in the park after the installation of a median bed and an entrance bed in Spring 2010.
