Acceptance of award
Keep Manatee Beautiful and its work with the Environmental Lands Management and Acquisition Advisory Committee (ELMAC) has been recognized with a 2012 Friends of Our Urban Forests Award from the Florida Urban Forestry Council for stimulating landscape beautification, tree planting, maintenance, preservation, and public educational programs within their community about the value of trees - environmentally and economically. This award from the Urban Forestry Council is given in the category of "Outstanding Tree Advocacy Group". The awards selection committee felt that the Keep Manatee Beautiful tree advocacy group's efforts stood above all other applicants in exemplifying excellence in Urban Forestry throughout the State of Florida. The nomination papers were submitted to the Council by Ed Flowers, Forest Resource Administrator, with the Florida Forest Service.
The recognition is granted for many of the following reasons:
Public outreach events are made possible through hosts Keep Manatee Beautiful, Manatee County Environmental Lands Management and Acquisition Committee (ELMAC), the Tree Boards of Greater Manatee County, and University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.
