For more than two decades, Keep Texas Beautiful, in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), has awarded the prestigious Governor's Community Achievement Awards (GCAA) to ten Texas communities with the best grassroots environmental programs in the state each year.

The competition distributes $2 million in funding from TxDOT across the ten communities, with the amount based on population size. The funds are used for landscaping projects along local rights-of-way. A community’s environmental program is judged on achievements in seven different areas: community leadership and coordination, public awareness, education, beautification and community improvement, litter prevention and cleanup, solid waste management and litter law and illegal dumping enforcement.

On June 24, 2014, Keep Rowlett Beautiful will receive the $250,000 award as first place winner in Category 7 at the Keep Texas Beautiful Annual Conference in Austin, TX. 

 

Schrade Middle School Plants Lowe's Demonstration Garden

On November 16, 2013,  Schrade Middle School science teacher, Paul Reyna, his students, Lowe's Heroes, and Keep Rowlett Beautiful volunteers planted a native, adaptive, and drought tolerant Demonstration Garden on the Schrade campus, made possible by a grant provided by Lowes through Keep Texas Beautiful. The demonstration garden is the latest addition to Mr. Reyna's outdoor environmental learning center at Schrade.  Students and Rowlett citizens alike are invited to go by and check out this beautiful garden.  Who knows, you may even pick up a few ideas for plantings in your own garden!  If your group or club would like to schedule a tour of the garden, just give us a call at Keep Rowlett Beautiful, 9am-1pm, M-F except holidays. Contact: Martha Brown, 972-463-3929.

On Wed, May 16, 2013, staff and 7th-12th grade students at Rockwall Christian Academy were joined by Rowlett City Councilman  Michael Gallops, Rowlett CERT President Whitney Laning, and Keep Rowlett Beautiful Office Manager Martha Brown, to learn about volunteer opportunities in our community and to clean up litter along Dalrock Road from Lakeview Parkway to I-30. A big THANK YOU to RCA for their help! We love our volunteers!
