(February 5, 2019) – With a grant awarded to Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful from Keep America Beautiful and Anheuser Busch, the nonprofit offered twenty mini-grants of up to $500 each to groups throughout Pennsylvania for volunteer initiatives ranging from river cleanups to invasive species removal, all designed to improve the health and vitality of local watersheds. Grant funds awarded totaled $95,000 nationally. Pennsylvania grant recipients coordinated 75 events, including cleanups, stream stabilization projects, the creation of a rain garden, and a number of invasive species removal projects. Cleanups resulted in the proper disposal of 103,040 pounds of trash and 889 tires and were coordinated in conjunction with Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s International Coastal Cleanup of PA. Projects were completed in fall 2018.
