Planting day was a great event!
Come visit Mount St. Mary Park in the spring of 2021 to enjoy the daffodils in bloom
Help us to plant 5,000 mixed daffodil bulbs along the path on Route 31 at Mount St. Mary Park to kick off Project Daffodil
Planting day: October 17, 2020
Heinz Brothers Greenhouse Garden Center
Daffodils are a universal symbol of rebirth and new beginnings. You can help us create a magnificent gateway into downtown St. Charles and demonstrate this to the entire St. Charles community in three ways:
On October 17, 2020 we will be planting 5,000 mixed daffodil bulbs centered around the Mr. Eggward sculpture in Mount St. Mary Park to create a dynamic new landmark of exceptional beauty each spring along the Rt. 31 entry point into downtown St. Charles.
Locally owned business supports Project Daffodil ... and you can too
As the Presenting Sponsor, locally owned and operated Heinz Brothers Greenhouse Garden Center has generously agreed to insure Project Daffodil succeeds and builds a strong foundation for future plantings. This is only the beginning. The River Corridor Foundation of St. Charles plans to “grow” this effort over time and plant 5,000 bulbs each year to reach 20,000 bulbs. You can play a vital part in creating this enduring spectacle in three ways. You can choose to be a Sponsor, make an individual donation, or Volunteer to help plant on October 17th. Or, do all of the above.
