Town Beautification

Citizens throughout the county are giving their time to make Marin magnificent. Here are groups working to make five towns even better.



CORTE MADERA Since 1993 the Corte Madera Beautification Committee has completed many projects around town, including the colorful hanging flower baskets, planted medians, pocket landscapes at intersections and wreaths displayed during the holiday season. cortemaderabeautification.org

MILL VALLEY For many years, Bloomathon installed seasonal plantings in select locations. Most recently, the Enjoy Mill Valley Fund, with others, have undertaken efforts like restoring the replica Mount Tamalpais gravity car. enjoymillvalley.com

SAN RAFAEL This year San Rafael is celebrating 20 years of volunteerism. The city’s volunteer projects have ranged from park trash cleanup and median improvements to graffiti removal. Volunteers will be out on Friday, October 28, as a part of Make a Difference Day, a celebration of neighbors helping neighbors. sanrafaelvolunteers.org

SAUSALITO Founded and led by Shelby Van Meter, the group known as Sausalito Beautiful is behind many improvements in the community. A “Green Thumb” team of volunteers tackles cleanup and improvement projects on an ongoing basis, and once a year the community is invited to participate in a Beautification Day; this year’s is scheduled for October 15. sausalitobeautiful.org

TIBURON Here the GreenTeam spends more than 700 hours each year on projects throughout the Tiburon Peninsula. From installing new plants to maintaining medians and public landscapes, this group does it all. tiburongreenteam.org
