Our Mission Statement
To be instrumental in improving our city's appearance through landscaping, flower beds, and physical improvements in our park network, and to foster beautification in our business and residential community.

Green Team Volunteers
Thanks to the many volunteers who take time from their own gardens to help plant flowers in our city. We extend appreciation to the St. Clair Shores businesses and residents that create and maintain beautiful year-round landscaping.

We're still in need of help to keep the plants happy and healthy. If you can donate a little time, please contact Lillian Claycomb at 586-773-0736 or email Sal Sulolli.
