In honor of their 35th anniversary, Keep Austin Beautiful is hosting its first Love Where You Live Day Saturday, Nov. 21.
Whether it’s on the street in front of your house or the pocket park around the corner, you can pick up some litter, mow your yard, weed a garden bed, or rake some leaves. Share your photos and get a chance to win a retro Keep Austin Beautiful t-shirt.
This is a fully remote event. KAB is asking everyone to give 35 minutes for 35 years this first event, any time between 9-11 a.m. Nov. 21.
When picking up litter, Keep Austin Beautiful recommends participants do so responsibly and at their comfort level. Your cleanup group should include only members of your household. Please wear a face mask and use disposable gloves. While picking up litter, be sure to maintain at least 6 feet of distance from others.
