We're grateful to have been awarded a $5,000 grant from the Duke Energy Foundation! This grant, in partnership with the Parks Foundation of Hendricks County, will support ecological enhancements at Williams Park.
Grant funds will be used to implement phase one of Williams Parks's ecological enhancement plan, which includes transitioning turf in the park's central median into a pollinator prairie mix. The pollinator prairie mix will promote the growth of various pollinator species and improve Williams Park's habitats for plants and animals. In addition, the project will help save on long-term turf management expenses, reduce fuel consumption, and enhance the park's biodiversity.
Our goal is to continue developing Williams Park as a destination for community members to connect with and learn from various natural areas, including woodlands, wetlands, pollinator gardens, and upland prairie.
