Arbor Day Seedling Giveaway Drive-thru
Keep Roswell Beautiful and the Parks department worked together to put on the annual Arbor Day event. Hundreds of seedlings were given away to families as they drove through Cahoon Park and received their seedlings and plant care information in a Keep Roswell Beautiful tote. To view a list of the plants we gave away in 2020 click here.
This event is to help promote a green and beautiful Roswell. We believe planting trees and shrubs year after year helps create a more beautiful Roswell one household at a time. We are excited for the event in 2021 and hope to have our full slate activities like a planting demonstration, story time with the Roswell Public Library, peanutbutter pinecone making with Spring River Zoo staff and other fun activities.
If you or anyone you know would be interested in helping plan the 2021 Arbor Day celebration contact program coordinator, Thalia Pantoja by email or call 575-637-6238.
Shop Small Street Sweep
Keep Roswell Beautiful teamed up with the Roswell Chamber of Commerce, Hispano Chamber of Commerce, and MainStreet Roswell to help support local business owners. Volunteers cleaned store fronts, swept, cleared side walks, and cleaned windows. This was all in preparation for Shop Small Saturday. This November 2019 event helped make sure these store owners were ready for a busy day of shoppers! This event was made possible through breakfast donated by McDonald’s and cleaning supplies from Starr Janitorial.
Recycled Art Project Pop-Up
In October of 2019 Keep Roswell Beautiful was able to partner with the Roswell Museum and Art Center (RMAC) to create a mural made entirely of bottle caps. Families who visited the Science and Art Festival, hosted by RMAC, had a part in turning bottle caps into a beautiful mural displayed in Pioneer Plaza. As families stopped by the KRB booth they received information and handouts on plastic usage and how to reduce plastic usage.
