The Macalester-Groveland Community Council fosters citizen participation
in government and community decisions that make our neighborhood
a great place to live, work, learn and play.


National Night Out is Tuesday, August 1st

NNO Logo

Organize a block party! 

A citywide celebration, National Night Out includes all segments of the community in building stronger, healthier neighborhoods. NNO also helps to build partnerships and trust between police and community. Neighbors repeatedly report that the neighbors they meet that day help build stronger neighborhoods throughout the year.

The benefits of using native species in your yard are endless: native gardens absorb much more rainwater than traditional gardens, provide a great habitat for butterflies and birds, and demand less maintenance (both water and fertilizers/pesticides) than non-native gardens. Well-maintained native gardens are environmentally friendly alternatives to lawns and gardens containing non-native species.
