Governor Branstad Proclaims April as Keep Iowa Beautiful Month

Governor Terry E. Branstad has signed a proclamation making April KEEP IOWA BEAUTIFUL MONTH. Community projects during the month encourage Iowans to build pride and respect in making their communities better places to live and work through beautification, clean-up and recycling activities.

“I encourage every mayor to promote a project in their local community,” said Gerry Schnepf, Executive Director of Keep Iowa Beautiful. “Clean-up and beautifications projects help build stronger communities and improve the economic vitality and cultural health of our state.”

As the Proclamation states, “Keep Iowa Beautiful, a state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, works with government organizations, private companies, communities and volunteer/service groups statewide to conduct litter prevention, recycling, beautification, community and landscape enhancement, increased volunteerism and waste minimization programs…”

For more than 14 years Keep Iowa Beautiful has worked to empower Iowans to make Iowa the cleanest and most attractive state in the nation.
