Through volunteer effort the Katie Bentley Lilac Project has become a popular way for individuals, institutions, schools, and municipalities to promote the love of lilacs in America.

Participation in the project is free of charge to any interested party. Simply register at the addresses below, or by phone. Plant a lilac purchased anywhere and become part of the project.

The Katie Bentley Lilac Project is dedicated to promoting and planting lilacs.
