If you are searching for something a little different for a gift for a graduation or Father's Day, consider this: the National Park Service will plant flowers on the National Mall in honor of someone you choose. With a contribution of $1.00 per bulb you can pick from a selection of flowers and the Trust for the National Mall will send the recipient a letter indicating the number of flower bulbs and the date of the gift.
The opportunity to participate in beautifying the National Mall is part of a campaign under the co-chairmanship of former First Lady Laura Bush to raise money to restore the National Mall. This recent article from USA Today details why the National Mall needs a face lift.
