Gulf Coast Resource Conservation and Development Council Supports Keep Mobile Beautiful, Inc. Outreach Program

Through the generosity of the Gulf Coast RC&D Council, the KMB outreach program will have more opportunities to  address  its mission  of motivating Mobilians to take greater individual responsibility in their community environment. The $9,030 grant award  will  be used  to support campus beautification, school recycling,  school  presentations,  and community  interactions and cleanup activities.  An example of  GCRC&D support can be found in the December blog postings.  GCRC&D funding made it possible for the  illustrations to be made into posters for use in presentations and interactions.

Due to  GCRC&D support,  KMB outreach coordinator, Phyllis Wingard, will conduct a teacher workshop on January 30, 2020, at the Jon Archer Agricultural Center to apprise schools of  $500 campus beautification grants available to  schools in Mobile County.  Information concerning the workshop  is being sent to school principals. Thank you to Gulf Coast Resource Conservation and Development Council for helping to make Mobile County a greener, cleaner and more beautiful place to live.

Choices Affecting the Planet

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.” —Jane Goodall


A or B

The simple choices made daily affect our world.  Reusable shopping bags  or one time use plastic bags- which choice helps  the planet?

Shades of Autumn

Autumn that year painted the countryside in vivid shades of scarlet, saffron and russet, and the days were clear and crisp under the harvest skies.

This reptilian beauty is an elusive garter snake.  Its autumnal colors blend in well with the pine straw and oak leaves of an untended flower bed.  However unwanted the attention, it waited patiently until a camera was retrieved to document  its visit.  Learn more about garter snakes and their contributions to the environment at the following link.
