Keep Angleton Beautiful
Keep Angleton Beautiful is led by a City Council-approved board an its mission is to empower Angleton citizens through education to take responsibility for enhancing Angleton’s environment.
Our vision is to make Angleton, Texas, the most beautiful and environmentally responsible place in Texas, one person at a time.
We hope to achieve this with a three-point emphasis on beautification, litter reduction and prevention, and solid waste (landfill) reduction/recycling.
- Downtown planters – Keep Angleton Beautiful helps provide and maintain planters filled with seasonal color in the downtown area. Your business or civic group can help sponsor a planter! Sponsors receive recognition and name placement on/near the planter. Contact us for more details.
- Angleton Hearts – Angleton is where the heart is – literally! Make sure to check out our heart signs throughout town.
- Liberty Garden / Monarch Waystation – This garden, located near City Hall at 121 S. Velasco, features native plants that are attractive to Monarch butterflies in an effort to increase the number of Monarchs and beautify our city.
- Yard & Business of the Month – March through November, the KAB board members pick one residence and one business each month to honor for their commitment to beautifying Angleton, one yard at a time.
Litter Reduction & Prevention
- Spring Citywide Cleanup – an annual spring event scheduled for a Saturday in early April (depending on Easter). Volunteers are encouraged to pick up litter, either in designated areas or areas they pick. Groups and individuals are also encouraged to plant or beautify areas of the city. Drop-off recycling of materials such as tires, batteries, and electronics is offered as well as paper shredding.

Family Monarch Conservation Education
Mayors' Monarch Pledge
To bring back the monarchs –and to protect all pollinators—we need to spread the word, to talk to our neighbors, friends, and family about the importance of taking action to conserve the monarch butterfly. Mayor Perez has taken the pledge committing to create habitat for the monarch butterfly and pollinators as well as to educate citizens about how they can make a difference at home and in their communities. In this class, families will learn about the monarch life cycle, habitat, environmental dangers and how to create a pollinator garden. We’ll create butterfly seed balls that each individual will get to take home and we’ll also plant a small pollinator garden in the front of the library.
