The National Wildlife Federation and local municipalities across the country have created the Mayors' Monarch Pledge to help stem the serious decline of the iconic monarch butterfly population. Butterflies are vital "pollinators" in our ecosystem.
Keep Douglasville Beautiful is spearheading this effort for Mayor Robinson, and she proclaimed February 2, 2017 as "Mayors’ Monarch Pledge Day”.
Keep Douglasville Beautiful is proud to have spearheaded the Douglasville Military Honor Garden. Created as a place to celebrate the honor and courage that members of the Douglasville military community have displayed during their service to our country, the Douglasville Military Honor Garden welcomes visitors to a place of beauty for those who wish to pay tribute to the brave military men, women, and families who sacrifice for our freedoms.
The garden is a beautiful public space, built with the support of citizens, service organizations, and businesses in our community for the benefit of the community. Memorial trees, garden spaces, markers, and benches are placed throughout the garden to create a vibrant, social space to enjoy and inspire.
