National Planting Day

 National Planting Day is a fall initiative of the Great American Cleanup, the nation’s largest community improvement campaign. National Planting Day encourages affliates and other partners to create beautiful spaces in public places and at home by planting pollinator gardens and native species.

National Planting Day celebrates the value and power of native species in restoring ecological balance to the environment, while creating greener, more beautiful communities.

With a national focus on the first Saturday after Labor Day each September and community-based activities happening throughout the month, Keep America Beautiful is asking National Planting Day participants to celebrate the theme of "Keep America Bee-utiful" by focusing their efforts on planting pollinators, in addition to native species.

The GetGrowing Initiative provides a national stage for the important role that beautification and greening plays in our communities.  Beautiful public places transcend aesthetic appeal to positively impact the lives of area residents, visitors, businesses and institutions.

We encourage all of our affiliates to participate! Click here for more information about National Planting Day, and to participate in this event.
