The Keep Lubbock Beautiful's Landscape Recognition Award will be presented to Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts (LHUCA) on Monday, August 17, 2020 in a ceremony at LHUCA. The public and media  are invited to attend the event at 511 Avenue K in Lubbock.

Lubbock Mayor Dan Pope will be present, and will be announcing the city's participation in the Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation.

According to a press release from the City of Lubbock about the Mayor's Challenge:

"Lubbock and residents from more than 4,800 cities across the United States took part in the 2017 Wyland National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, which promotes water conservation and being water-wise at your home and business.

The Landscape Recognition Award recognizes businesses and organizations that have landscaping that promotes, and encourages, more awareness of water-wise landscaping- which is also being recognized this month during the Water Conservation Challenge. Some of the criteria included in choosing the winning landscapes are more plants than grass, native and/or drought tolerant species and well-maintained planting beds.

The Keep Lubbock Beautiful Advisory Committee selects these winners every other month from nominations received from the public. Photos will be posted online on the Keep Lubbock Beautiful web page and Facebook page, and each recognized landscape will receive a certificate to commemorate their contribution to keeping Lubbock beautiful."
