Read for the Environment
  • Beautify members teamed up with Keep
    Carbondale Beautiful in 2004 for the Read for the
    Environment program. Volunteers read
    environmental stories to first, second, and third
    graders at local Carbondale schools. Following
    the stories, a discussion was lead concerning the
    litter and recycling issues in which the story
    confronted. Children were awarded with coloring
    books, crayons and pencils created from recycled
    products, as well as recycling information for
    their parents.

Anti-Litter Events
  • Every semester USG supports Beautify Southern
    Illinoiss anti-litter efforts for campus,
    Carbondale, and the southern Illinois region.
    Between 30-150 volunteers work together to
    collect litter from designated areas. Volunteers
    are rewarded with pizza and beverages after each

Earth Awareness Exhibit
  • The Earth Awareness Exhibit was created by the
    Beautify Southern Illinois Student Alliance in
    2004. The Exhibit is a chance for local school
    children to learn about various aspects of the
    earth. Between 10-20 professionals educate the
    children on their area of expertise. Topics
    include everything from recycling, to the
    rainforest, to solar energy efforts. 320
    children attended the event last year, however,
    this year we hope to expand our influence to
    include more children.

Beautification Projects
  • Beautify Southern Illinois has participated in
    various projects to help beautify southern
    Illinois. Efforts include planting trees and
    flowers, anti-litter efforts, and restoration

Environmental Education
  • Environmental education is one of Beautifys
    most prevalent goals. Our hope is to create
    conscious attitudes from the beginning, which
    will eliminate future problems. Besides our big
    projects, Beautify participates with classrooms,
    church groups, and organizations to help reach
    all children.

Make A Difference Day
  • Make A Difference Day is a national day
    dedicated to serving others. This year Beautify
    created ten projects for volunteers to
    participate in. Projects included a pet parade,
    a wildlife demonstration at a local nursing home,
    environmental projects at local libraries, a
    project to help create a wetland, as well as a
    workshop for 100 Girl Scouts to learn about
    various aspects of the environment.
