The Erma Wolters Beautification Fund

A Commitment to Keeping Medora Looking Beautiful

helping our favorite city bloom

The terrain of the Badlands is striking and intense—but there’s plenty of room for color and beauty in Medora.


The Erma Wolters Beautification Endowment Fund is named for our founder Harold Schafer’s longtime secretary and friend. She established the fund because of her love for flowers—and it supports the ongoing beautification of Medora.


Earnings from the Erma Wolters Beautification Fund help us defray the cost of seasonal flowers and plantings in Medora, beautification projects, and operating costs of the TR Medora Foundation’s grounds crew.
