The Douglas County chapter of Master Gardeners won the 2013 Search for Excellence in Demonstration Gardens at the 2013 International Master Gardener Conference. The award was related to Monarch Waystation #1 on the KU campus, created as a model pollinator garden in conjunction with the Monarch Watch education and research program. The Search for Excellence program recognizes Master Gardener projects in seven categories: youth programs, demonstration garden, workshop or presentation, community service, innovative projects, special need audiences and research.

Jennifer Smith, Douglas County Extension Horticulturist works with the Master Gardeners, reported that Margarete Johnson, Mary Olson, and Carol Crupper worked on the application, and to Diane Guthrie, Jim Blom, and others provided photos that were submitted with the application and  Margarete prepared a poster to display at the conference.
