Fall Beautification Projects

Make A Difference Day 2021 is October 9th
Pollinator Planting at the new Lewisville Kayak Launch Site


Make A Difference Day and National Planting Day-
Saturday October 9th, 2021 

Join us on October 9th for our annual Make A Difference Day project!
8:00am - 12:00pm

This year, KLB and volunteers will be partnering with the City of Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department to plant 800 pollinator plants at the new kayak launch. Volunteers are needed to help sort plants, dig, and plant native species that will support pollinator habitat and promote biodiversity.

Due to COVID protocols, volunteers will be staggered and placed in small groups so that we can remain socially distanced during the planting. We will limit this project to 100 volunteers total, to ensure safety and enough space to social distance. Keep Lewisville Beautiful will provide all the tools necessary (hand trowels, shovels, gloves).

Registration is required for this event- no walk ups will be accepted. Please register by 10/1/2021.
Masks are strongly encouraged.

Free volunteer t-shirt for all registered volunteers.

For more information, please contact the KLB office by emailing us at info@keeplewisvillebeautiful.org or calling 972-538-5949.

History:

Every year in October, KLB participates in the nation-wide Make a Difference Day. This day is dedicated to giving back to the community. KLB partners with several other organizations, civic groups, scouts, and the City of Lewisville to successfully plant flowers in Lewisville as part of our annual beautification effort. This ongoing project is a lot of fun for the entire family, and is safe for all ages. It is a continuing project year after year, in hopes of changing the image of our great city and making Lewisville the most beautiful that it can be.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please give us a call 972-538-5949 or e-mail info@keeplewisvillebeautiful.org for more information. We are always looking for volunteers.
