The Maryland Environmental Trust in partnership with Maryland State Highway Administration and Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) presents Keep Maryland Beautiful grants. Grants through the Keep Maryland Beautiful (KMB) program help volunteer-based, nonprofit groups and communities develop environmental education projects, litter removal, and solve natural resource issues in urban and rural areas.
The Margaret Rosch Jones Award
Established in 1976 and is given in her memory. She was the executive director and moving spirit of the Keep Maryland Beautiful Program for many years.
The Trust hopes to remind citizens of her devotion, energy, and ingenuity by presenting an award in her name to a group whose voluntary activities personified these attributes that Margaret Jones brought to her work.
Born in 1906, Margaret Jones was dedicated to the preservation of the Chesapeake Bay.
One of her “pet projects” was a statewide contest with prizes for winners of gasoline station inspections.
Margaret Jones had a genius IQ, wrote poetry in her spare time and was a self-taught Latin scholar.
The Margaret Rosch Jones Award of up to $2,000 is for non-profit groups or communities that show continuing plans for a project that has already demonstrated a basic understanding and resolution of an environmental issue.
To recognize volunteer non-profit groups or communities for demonstrated environmental education or environmental problem reduction efforts.
- To encourage the ongoing work of groups that have been active in educating people in their community about at least one of these concerns: litter prevention, community beautification, and local or statewide environmental issue(s).
- To help local groups eliminate or reduce the causes of a local environmental problem rather than just address the symptoms.
