Help us keep De Pere beautiful!
There are many ways to get involved in keeping our city beautiful! Our goal along with the De Pere Area Chamber of Commerce is to infuse beauty and civic pride into our community. We believe promoting beautification will increase the quality of life for all citizens. This has been our mission for 30+ years.
Your donation helps us to purchase 1000’s of flowers each year for the pots and flower beds throughout De Pere.
If you are a local group or
business, Adopt-a-Bed or
Round-About, and keep it weeded
throughout the growing season.
It’s very rewarding!
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

Have you a loved one that has passed or is there someone you would like to honor? The De Pere Beautification Committee has Garden Stakes for purchase. The Garden Stake will be placed in one of the memorial pots, (you designate East or West De Pere). It will have the name of the person to be honored and will remain there for the season. At the end of the year, you will receive the garden stake.
Are You Outdoors-y?
Volunteering is an excellent way to help beautify our city. We can always use many hands and heads in the designing and planning of the color themes and schemes to be used. Next comes the time to plant and tend to the beds throughout the city. Once planted, it only takes a couple hours a month for upkeep.

Keeping De Pere beautiful for 30 years!
The De Pere Beautification Committee is proud of the 30 + years helping to improve the look and feel of our city. We have partnered with the City of De Pere and Definitely De Pere. This collaboration has brought about our common goal of artistic decorations to enhance our city’s charm.
For 30 years volunteers have been giving of their time and money. They are hard working and a conscientious group. Without them, this would not be possible. Remember when you drive down our streets, know that many hands and hearts have gone into the beauty you see.
