The Keep La Plata Beautiful (KLBP) Committee is guided by the goals of the Keep America Beautiful program:

  • Clean - End littering and graffiti, provide opportunities for watershed stewardship through community cleanups
    • Join one of our quarterly cleanups in Downtown La Plata
    • Ask us about the Adopt-A-Spot program - you, your family, your business or organization... clean up and green up a public space for everyone to enjoy!
  • Green - Improve recycling and greenscaping, promote sustainable living and business practices (Green Team/Sustainable Maryland, Bird City Maryland)
  • Beautiful - Beautify communities through plantings and public art (Arts Workgroup, Tree City USA)
