2020 Trees and Flower Grant

The Friends of Wisconsin State Parks are pleased to offer 2020 Trees and Flowers grant funding this year. These grant funds are designated to be used to plant trees, flowers and shrubs at Wisconsin state parks, forests, trails and recreation areas during the spring of 2020. This grant funding will be available to local Friends groups for the purchase of plants/trees to enhance high visibility areas of the state park system property in areas such as the entrance to the property, the office area or other high visibility visitor areas. There will be a limited number of grants available to Friends groups in the amount of $100 – and matching Friends groups funding is encouraged if possible. Please work with your property manager to plan what would be planted, the location of the planting and who would be doing the planting, so that it will be in compliance with all state orders and in accordance with some state park system properties that are currently closed.

All plantings funded by this grant must be completed by June 15, 2020.

FWSP would like all interested Friends groups to send a $100 grant request by email consisting of:
  • - Name of Friends Group, contact person for the project and contact information
  • - A short description of the 2020 planting project including the location, plants that will be planted and who will be doing the planting.
Please send your request by email to Patricia.Loosen@FWSP.org by Friday – May 8, 2020

FWSP will review the Friends group grant requests that are received and will fund as many of them as possible, allowing priority for Friends groups who have not received funding in the previous year.

Friends groups who receive funding are required to complete all planting by June 15, 2020, and to provide a short summary and 1-2 photos of the project by Aug. 1, 2020.

Please discuss this grant opportunity with your Friends members and your property manager and apply for the funding, if you would like to be considered for the 2020 Trees and Flowers grant funding.

**Applications by email must be received by Friday – May 8, 2020!
Thank you for all that you do to support our beautiful Wisconsin State Parks, Forests, Trails and Recreation Areas!
