2019 Community Beautification Grants

River Valley Girl Scout Troup #55278

$250 to buy perennials for boulevard plantings at the completion of the new highway 12 reconstruction in Mahtomedi/Willernie. The troop will undertake this community project to complete a “Silver Award” in the area of sustainability.

White Bear Lake Area Historical Society

$1000 for a landscape project at the site of the historic Cass Gilbert designed White Bear Town Hall which has recently been moved to Polar Lakes Park. MGC funding would supplement fundraising by WBLAHS and enable the project to go ahead this summer.

White Bear Center for the Arts

$500 to continue their site improvement focusing on the area around the labyrinth. Plantings will include drought tolerant native plants diagrammed in the application.

The Mahtomedi Garden Club awarded these grants for garden-related projects in public areas of Mahtomedi, Willernie and adjacent communities. 

These funds are available because of the generous member and community support of our annual Plant Sale, Garden Tour and February Outreach Event.
