On March 20, Granby’s Board of Selectmen joined with members of the Conservation Committee to honor the winner of the 2022-23 Conservation Commission Yard Sign design contest. 

Last year, members of the public asked the commission to investigate an initiative called “No Mow May.” Neighbors also asked about ways to promote pollinators so people would understand why they might be planting wildflowers in part of their formerly grassy lawn or letting their grass lawn go un-mowed for longer than usual. The idea for the yard sign contest emerged.

Seventeen residents, ranging in age from elementary school to senior citizen, submitted entries. The commission unanimously selected the submission by Griffin Parrow, a junior at Granby Memorial High School. Griffin was presented with a $50 VISA gift card, a copy of his winning yard sign, a framed certificate of recognition and a packet of wildflower seeds donated by the Friends of Granby Wildflower Meadow.

A very limited number of yard signs are available for $5 each from any commissioner or by contacting Dave Roberts at Granbydavidroberts@gmail.com or 860-469-5067.
