Celebrate spring by adopting a flower

March 21, 2022 – FYI

Every year, the City and Borough of Juneau relies on the generosity of local citizens to add beautiful flowers to Juneau’s landscape through the Adopt-A-Flower program. All donations go into funding 200 hanging baskets, 60 flower barrels, and 50 flower beds and planters seen throughout town, from the Juneau International Airport to Downtown Juneau. Donate online here (look under Special Events). All donations received by May 15 will be recognized on an Adopt-A-Flower sign displayed at Marine Park Plaza.

Most of the flowers that get planted around town start as seedlings in CBJ’s Mendenhall Valley greenhouse. In preparation for the summer season, Parks & Recreation Landscape Division staff members plant and care for more than 16,000 seedlings. In May, the flowers get planted.

Donations for the Adopt-A-Flower program come in various funding levels:

  • Seedling Sponsor $15 – $99
  • Flower Bed Sponsor $100 – $249
  • Flower Barrel Sponsor $250 – $499
  • Hanging Basket Sponsor at $500 and up

The first five people who donate $500 or above will receive a hanging basket from the landscape crew. Donate online here (look under Special Events).
