Spring Success! What's Next?

Posted on April 21, 2023

Hi Friends!
Tomorrow is Earth Day, our annual celebration of Mother Earth, all she does for us, and all we can do for her. Not sure yet how to show how much you care? You’re in luck.
The Great American Cleanup is in full swing in Martin County until June 20, with groups and individuals picking up litter, cleaning the beaches, and improving neighborhoods.
Want to be a part of our Green Up & Clean Up efforts? Learn how you can volunteer by checking out upcoming opportunities
You can learn more about Earth Day and GAC from our Keep Martin Beautiful article in April’s Friends & Neighbors.
Looking to make a long-term commitment? Get involved in our Adopt-A-Road program. Take ownership of a little piece of Martin County and put environmental stewardship into action. Mother Earth says thanks.
With gratitude,
The KMB Team
