Watershed & Park Cleanups
For more than six decades, Keep America Beautiful has served as our country’s nonprofit steward of litter prevention. Litter is more than just a blight on our landscape. Litter is costly to clean up, impacts our quality of life and economic development, and eventually ends up in our waterways and oceans. Do your part to Keep Winter Park Beautiful & Sustainable by helping pick up trash in a city park or removing litter in a city lake via a paddleboard. Check out the event calendar to see when the next cleanup is! Do you want to organize your own private group cleanup? Access more information about private group cleanups.
Plantings & Invasive Removals
Help keep our environment healthy by planting native species in Winter Park’s natural areas and along our waterways. The Sustainability Division works with the Lake Division and Urban Forestry Division for shoreline restoration and tree planting. Natural Resources and Sustainability Department works with Mead Botanical Garden on invasive plant removal. Removing nonnatives allows for native flora and fauna of Central Florida to thrive in their natural environment. Join our sustainability e-List to get updates on upcoming events!
FDOT Adopt-A-Highway Program
Every year millions of visitors get their first glimpse of our state from their car windows as they travel along Florida’s Highways. First impressions can be long lasting. Do we want them to see miles of roadway cluttered with litter? Or clean, green tree-lined highways that truly represent Florida’s natural beauty? The choice is an easy one: Adopt-A-Highway.
Storm Drain Marking Program
After rainfall, stormwater flows over land or impervious surfaces, such as paved streets, parking lots, and building dirt/sediment. Stormwater runoff is directed to local waterways, that without treatment, can harm our rivers, streams, lakes, and coastal waters. Help protect our city’s waterways from pollution by placing storm drain markers in your neighborhood!
