Since 1967, Fond du Lac County’s Natural Beauty Council has been recognizing the outstanding efforts of local residents for their beautification and preservation efforts at their homes, businesses, farms, institutions, and churches. Beautification and preservation are done through landscaping and outside property improvements. 

Does your neighbor have a yard you look forward to enjoying each year? Have you ever driven past a yard and the landscaping has you doing a double take? If so, please nominate them for a Fond du Lac County Beautification Award. Area 4-H clubs can be nominated for planting flowers and shrubs.   

Nominations will be accepted until Friday, July 17. There are numerous ways to submit a nomination:  send an email to; call the County Clerk’s Office, (920) 929-3000; or mail a written nomination to “Beautification Awards,” County Clerk’s Office, P.O. Box 1557, Fond du Lac, WI  54936-1567. Please include your name and phone number, as well as the name, address, and phone number of the nominated site.

Members of the Fond du Lac County Natural Beauty Council will tour the nominated sites in early August, and awards will be presented at a fall session of the Fond du Lac County Board of Supervisors.

Members of the Fond du Lac County Natural Beauty Council include John Rickert, chair; Sarah Everson, vice chair; Pam Bartoli; Joseph Koch; and Michael Will.
