Communities in Bloom

Communities in Bloom

Communities in Bloom promotes involvement and action by citizens of all ages, the municipal government, local organizations, and businesses. The program strives to improve the tidiness, appearance and visual appeal of Canada's neighbourhoods, parks, open spaces and streets through the imaginative use of flowers, plants and trees. A focus on environmental awareness and preservation of heritage and culture is also an integral part of its success resulting in an improved quality of life.

The Whitecourt Communities in Bloom Committee is pleased to continue the Adopt a Banner Program. The program encourages you to adopt a decorative banner that will be displayed on light standards throughout our community. This program will increase the aesthetic appeal of Whitecourt streets and neighbourhoods.

The Yellow Fish Road Project is a proactive environmental initiative, which educates the public about the storm sewer system and encourages people not to dump oil, pesticides, turpentine, paint and other unwanted substances containing chemicals into the storm sewer system. Join this project today by calling or visiting the Community Services Department at the Town Administration Office at 778-6300.

By using native plants to the Whitecourt area, many hazards of gardening can be eliminated because you can be sure that the plants will be cold tolerant and hardy in other conditions specific to our area.

By adopting water savvy habits in and around your home this summer, you can save money on your water bills and still have a beautiful lawn and garden.

The Park Guardian program was established to encourage community involvement in the care and maintenance of all green spaces, in particular parks, playgrounds, and school yards.
