Lowe’s Heroes have fun while working at the Reservoir’s Botanical Gardens at 2230 Spillway Road, Brandon, MS 39047.
Poles are being set today by Lowes Heroes, PRVWSD employees and a few good volunteers from Forest Point! Tomorrow, the construction crew will be building the outdoor educational pavilion. Keep the Rez Beautiful is working on five projects with Lowes and Keep America Beautiful.
Check out new landscaping at Lakeshore Park too. Beautiful pollinator gardens at work!!!
Tomorrow, Sept. 12 is National Planting Day! Whole Foods, Inc, Highland Village is hosting a day for children to celebrate in the courtyard from 9:30 a.m. till 12:30 p.m. KRB pollinator coloring sheets will be available for the children to color and Whole Foods will display them in their store. Come join the fun!
Several of Whole Foods, Inc. employees joined us last week at the Turtle Point Nature Area Pollinator/Sensory Garden, and we jump started our National Planting Day! We cleaned up the garden, planted pollinators and mulched until it is bee-utiful.
Angie Webb, Pearl River Kayaks and KRB volunteer and Debbie Veeder, KRB Chairman, check out the new cigarette ash receptacle installed at the Leake County Water Park. The receptacles are being provided to all PRVWSD campgrounds and parks through a grant from Keep America Beautiful. Less cigarette litter means a cleaner Pearl River and Reservoir. ”
Thanks Keep America Beautiful!!!
KRB would like to thank advisory board member Donna Harris for coordinating an after school project for Keep The Rez Beautiful. Celebrating National Planting Day this month, KRB volunteers are planting pollinators, shrubs and tending to existing gardens around the Reservoir. Utilizing existing pine straw on PRVWSD property is a perfect mulch for the projects. Left to right are Brandon Middle School students – Brayden Green, Tyler Harris, Cole Hall & Graham Harris, Brandon Elementary.
