Pelican Lakes Conservation Club donates toward Talking Boxes
A BIG Thank You to Jim Fogarty and the Pelican Lakes Conservation Club for their $500 donation toward the Linda Ulland Memorial Gardens Talking Boxes project, as seen here handing donation to Lynn Scharenbroich of (PBSBA).
Over the years, the Pelican Lakes Conservation Club has been welcoming to area groups who are seeking funding for environmentally related work. The Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Association (PBSBA) applied for funds to support one of its projects called the Linda Ulland Memorial Gardens (LUMG). This project is a unique set of representational gardens. Some examples within the garden design are forest foraging, wildflower/butterfly gardens, deer resistant garden plantings, ‘house’ garden highlighting houses for bees, bats, toads, etc that are beneficial to gardens, and several others.
This project is quite large. Active partner, the US Army Corps of Engineers, is the owner of the Crosslake Campground property upon which the LUMG is located. The two groups together already have about two years of work into this project and because it is a garden, it will be an ongoing project throughout the years. A May 19, 2017, grand opening is planned.
