2017 FWSP Trees & Flowers Grant – Blue Mound State Park
The Friends of Blue Mound State Park requested a grant in the amount of $100 to work with the Blue Mounds Garden Club to purchase plants and materials necessary to enhance the area around the Blue Mound State Park Entrance Visitor Station (PEVS).
The Blue Mounds Garden Club designed and donated plants from their own gardens for this project, so the total cost was only $92.31 which included bags of filler soil and a soaker hose. The remaining funds, including the promised matching $100 from the Friends of Blue Mound State Park, will be used to beautify the new Friends Shelter sign, once it is installed.

The Blue Mounds Garden Club and other park volunteers donated their time for the installation.

The Park donated the mulch.
