Keep Lincoln County Beautiful

Wayne Howard

Jenna Harmon, the Executive Director of Keep Lincoln County Beautiful, made her annual report to Lincoln County Commissioners at their meeting on Monday January 23rd.

Harmon told Commissioners that KLCB's mission is to educate, inspire, and empower the community to improve the environment through beautification, litter prevention, and recycling.

She gave details of various KLCB projects accomplished during 2022, among them the West Lincoln Sidewalk Project where they

  • Planted 21 trees and 22 shrubs that will also help reduce carbon dioxide levels and potentially harmful gases from the air; and spread 10 yards of mulch
  • Created 3 landscape focal areas along the newly installed sidewalk
  • Educated students about the importance of trees

For the project, KLCB teamed with Heafner’s Nursery, Lincoln Landscape, and Lincoln County Schools; KLCB led the project and funded the project cost ($3,790). Volunteers worked with West Lincoln High School students from the Agriculture and Horticulture classes.

KLCB also did a river cleanup on the South Fork River and participated in the NCDOT's Spring & Fall Litter Sweeps; was the Adopt a Highway sponsor for Jack Dellinger Road at the Lincolnton-Lincoln County Airport; and helped in cleaning up two different homeless camps where debris, food and other biologically hazardous waste, and stolen shopping carts were found and removed.
