Juneau: Celebrate Spring By Adopting a Flower
AkGlobe News/10234990

~ The City and Borough of Juneau is calling on local citizens to help beautify the city through its Adopt-A-Flower program. Donations will go towards funding 200 hanging baskets, 60 flower barrels, and 50 flower beds and planters seen throughout town. All donations received by May 7 will be recognized on an Adopt-A-Flower sign displayed at Marine Park Plaza.

The Parks & Recreation Landscape Division staff members are responsible for planting and caring for more than 16,000 seedlings in preparation for the summer season. The flowers are planted in May. Donations come in various funding levels from $15 to $99 for Seedling Sponsors, $100 to $249 for Flower Bed Sponsors, $250 to $499 for Flower Barrel Sponsors, and $500 or above for Hanging Basket Sponsors. The first seven people who donate at least $500 will receive a hanging basket from the landscape crew.
