MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - The League of Women Voters hosted a meeting Thursday to address environmental challenges in Midland.

Keep Midland Beautiful’s Executive Director Doreen Womack spoke on some of those challenges, such as litter prevention, recycling, water conservation, and beautification of the city.

Womack also encouraged the community to get involved.

“People are so busy and so volunteers to go out and actually clean up, that’s harder for us to get that time from people,” said Womack.

The next opportunity to help out will be the Great American Cleanup.
