Known for being one of Georgia's seven natural wonders, the garden at Radium Springs in Albany has been chosen by Monarchs Across Georgia as the "Outstanding Pollinator Habitat of the Year". The award was presented to Doughtery County Chairman Jeff Sinyard and Doughtery County Commissioners on Thursday. Officials with the garden are thankful for the award because just a few months ago, a certain part of the garden was ruined by flooding. Park Coordinator Thomas Bruce says "we lost probably out of the 25 butterfly bushes that we have; about 21, 22 of those, we had to replace that many and it's been great."
The Garden at Radium Springs is a collaborative effort between Doughtery County and the Southwest Georgia Master Garden Extension.
