Why Keep Haralson Beautiful?

OUR MISSION:

Encourage sustainable environmental practices in Haralson County through public education and community based programs.

Keep Haralson Beautiful was created by our local citizens to give everyone an opportunity to be an active part in transforming our own community - where we all live, work and play. When we take care of our environment, we're invested in changing our perspective of that environment. So we've created open projects that involve all aspects of community improvement, such as planting trees, litter pickups, revitalizing properties and building green spaces.

 

Keep Haralson Beautiful is an affliate of Keep America Beautiful.   Volunteers participating in our Cleanup Events, Litter Pick-Up on the Tallapoosa River, Recycled Electronics Program, school and public Activities for Children and Arbor Day are so important to reaching our goal of a clean environment and polution free waterways.
