Keep Shady Shores Beautiful is an Affiliate of the Statewide Keep Texas Beautiful Program. The main goal of the program is to promote, sponsor and support programs that will keep our community clean and our lake free from toxic chemicals trash and debris while protecting our natural habitat and overall beauty of the community. The Keep Shady Shores Beautiful board will work with the Chamber of Commerce, local businesses, schools, and individuals to develop programs that support the overall goals of the program and provide community education.
Some projects that Keep Shady Shores Beautiful has been involved with in the past are:
Milkweed seed distribution to encourage Monarch Butterfly population growth.
Adopt a Spot Shady Shores
Coordination of annual clean up events such as Trash Bash etc.
Working with Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other youth organizations to clean and maintain shore line
Development of Education programs to encourage recycling and litter prevention with local schools and civic organizations.
