Pasco County is known statewide, and beyond, for its seagrass and salt marsh coastline, acres of conservation land, and rich natural resources. Keeping the environment in tip-top shape is the goal of Keep Pasco Beautiful, and the group is being honored for those efforts.
Pasco County announced that the Keep Florida Beautiful network has named Keep Pasco Beautiful as “Affiliate of the Year.” There are more than 40 affiliates in the Florida network.
“We are extremely honored to receive this award,” said Keep Pasco Beautiful coordinator Kristen King. “This recognition shows that even in challenging times, our community bands together to protect our environment and create a positive impact.”
Keep Pasco Beautiful was recognized for its Pasco Earth Day Celebration, its Great American Cleanup, and its ongoing social media engagement.
Keep Florida Beautiful also commended Keep Pasco Beautiful for its ongoing, successful community partnerships that benefit both the local community and the organization.
Keep Pasco Beautiful is supported by Pasco County Department of Public Works and Pasco County Solid Waste.
