Keep Anna Beautiful

KeepAnnaBeautiful-03

Keep Anna Beautiful is an affiliate program of Keep Texas Beautiful. 

Litter is a significant problem throughout North Texas. In addition to spoiling our views and decreasing our property values, it hurts our native plants and animals.  Keep Anna Beautiful's mission statement is " To inspire and educate the citizens of Anna to keep our community clean and beautiful."  You can be a vital part of living out that statement. We are actively seeking potential volunteers to help us create a positive impact here in Anna.

Prairie Restoration in Progress!

The Keep Anna Beautiful crew is working on a Prairie Restoration project at Natural Springs Park. An area of the park along the east section of the trail has been designated as a pocket prairie and will be seeded with native Texas wildflowers and grasses. Seeds were purchased with a grant awarded by the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Educational signs will be placed along the walking path to highlight the benefits of Prairie Restoration.

Seeding will take place in fall of 2022 and in the spring of 2023 we can hope to view the native Texan prairie!

Tree City USA

Tree City USA logoIn 2021, The City of Anna received recognition as a 2021 Tree City USA. 

Trees are an asset to a community when properly planted and maintained. They help improve the visual appeal of a neighborhood, increase property values, reduce home cooling costs, remove air pollutants, and provide wildlife habitat, among many other benefits.

Texas Arbor Day is celebrated on the first Friday in November each year. Fall is a better time to plant trees in Texas due to the cooler temperatures. The City has celebrated in the past by planting trees at Slayter Creek park. Be on the look out for you can join in this year's celebration!
