Thousands of people have participated in Let's Beautify Cumberland! (LBC!) activities since 1996. Not just citizens of Cumberland are involved - we have had people from Flintstone, Frostburg, Fort Ashby, Hyndman, and Bedford participate in LBC! projects.
People of all ages are welcome to help beautify the Queen City through LBC! projects. Local community groups help accomplish many projects that involve LBC!
Garden clubs and civic groups can adopt parklets (a.k.a "the Beauty Spots") to maintain...call 301-722-2000 to see what parklets available and volunteer your group.
Several committee members also work with Shade Tree Commission, planting trees and shrubs.
Several local schools have assisted LBC! by growing and planting plants, painting several signs and fences, and doing some general litter pick-up.
Several local businesses have donated wood, paint, plants, and many other miscellaneous supplies over several years. If your business is interested in helping call 301-722-2000.
Local media help to publicize Let's Beautify Cumberland! programs and events.
