Environmental Stewardship Awards Nominations will Reflect Diversity of Our Community

Posted on February 4, 2024

“Where are you from?” This is a frequent conversation-starter in Martin County, especially during this time of year when “snowbirds” are back in town and visitors are everywhere.

Our community is fortunate to have this kind of diversity – people from other places who have settled here permanently or part time who see Martin County as a paradise and want to do whatever they can to keep it that way.

Keep Martin Beautiful is a volunteer-driven organization, and we benefit from the ideas and enthusiasm that come from this diversity. When you see our volunteers on beaches during the International Coastal Cleanup, in neighborhoods during the Great American Cleanup, or along roadways as part of the Adopt-a-Road program, you see they represent all ages, professions, income levels and educational backgrounds.

What they all have in common is their devotion to protecting and improving our environment through litter removal, beautification and community revitalization activities.  But there’s so much more to environmental stewardship and that’s where you come in.
