“They were joined by new US Consul General Karen Grissette, who met with the Trust’s Executive Director Karen Border and Director of Development Dörte Horsfield to hear about the work of the Trust and enjoy a tour of Waterville. She was invited to plant a Bermuda Palmetto, the symbol of the Trust, with the help of a cadet.”

Consul General Grissette said, “Planting a Bermuda Palmetto here at Waterville is a lovely symbol of the continued strengthening of the relationship between the United States and Bermuda. I am particularly proud of the USCG Eagle cadets who assisted the Bermuda National Trust today in its effort to protect and promote Bermuda’s unique and beautiful natural and cultural heritage.”

The spokesperson said, “Mrs Border thanked the cadets for their volunteer work in the garden, which was overseen by Head of Natural Heritage Myles Darrell.”

Mr Darrell said, “The cadets were a delight – very hard working and a lot of fun. They were happy to get stuck in and get dirty and sweaty and they achieved a great deal in a short space of time.”

The spokesperson said, “Addressing the cadets, Ms Grissette said they were fine representatives of the United States and made her proud.”
