About Munsinger Clemens Botanical Society

MCBS was created in January 2000 by community residents who love the Gardens. This all volunteer group wanted to increase the visibility of the Gardens by having special events in the Gardens and giving financial support for Gardens improvements. Our group works closely with the City of St. Cloud Parks Department to reach these goals. Munsinger Clemens Gardens are a part of the American Horticulture Society network of member gardens, which increases the visibility of our Gardens outside our immediate area.

The MCBS Board meets monthly to plan events and conduct other business. In addition to our website, we can be found on Facebook and Instagram. We also publish a quarterly newsletter for members. Contact us at


Memberships help us reach our goals of organizing special events to bring people to the Gardens and giving an annual financial gift to support the Gardens. Become a member today and help support a really special place – Munsinger Clemens Gardens.
