Milwaukee sponsors the Mayors Landscape Awards each year to
recognize and encourage greening activities in the city. In the Garden
Party event each March, several hundred people attend the awards for
outstanding landscaping and greenery and to kick off the growing season.
The awards are given to Milwaukee homeowners and other residents -
whether private citizens, businesses, organizations, or churches.
Anyone can nominate their own garden or a neighbors, and two
winners are chosen from each aldermanic district. Special recognition
awards are also given.
