This spring's motto for Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful is "Beauty dies where litter lies."
"We've been running 2,000 or better for the last five years. Which makes a wonderful statement about our community. Because they've really bought in to the program and they're saying loud and clear that they don't like litter," said Judy Bowles of Keep Albany-Dougherty Beautiful.
The annual community-wide litter pick-up event takes place the week of April 18th thru April 25th as volunteers from all walks of life join environmental hands to become an agent of positive change.
