Coconut Telegraph


Keep Manatee Beautiful, which envisions a Manatee County that is a clean, green and more beautiful to live, announced today the launch of the 2017 Great American Cleanup Countywide on April 22, Sat., which is on Earth Day, 9:00 a.m. – noon.  Tree plantings will occur the following week for Nat. Arbor Day, April 28. Entering its 19th year, Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup is the nation’s largest community improvement program that kicks off each March with events occurring from spring through fall in more than 20,000 communities across the country. This year’s Great American Cleanup theme is “Clean Your Block Party.” The objective of “Clean Your Block Party” is to encourage local volunteers to build a sense of community pride with their family, friends and neighbors, while making a lasting, positive impact – block by block. Participating affiliates and partnering organizations will provide activity ideas and resources to help anyone conduct a Great American Cleanup event in their own neighborhood. Adopt-A-Highway, Road and Shore groups will be doing cleanups at their adopted sites.  More volunteers are needed to clean, beautify and improve roadsides, shores, parks and neighborhoods throughout Manatee County. Other volunteers can help by arriving at 9 a.m. at any of the following cleanup block party locations which are posted at www.manateebeautiful.com
