Kenny’s work has been featured in Garden and Gun, Texas Monthly, Wired, Southern Living, Texas Highways, This Old House Magazine and more. And now it can be on your vehicle too! Order one today!

Here are the details:

  • Cost: only $30 year (in addition to your regular registration fee) — with $22 going to benefit the Adopt-A-Beach program’s all-volunteer effort to keep trash off Texas beaches. Select Background Only, if you do not want to personalize your plate, which has an additional fee.
  • Available for these vehicles: passenger, motorcycle, or trailer.
  • Available now: You don’t need to wait for your annual vehicle registration renewal. The cost will be pro-rated. If you already have an Adopt-A-Beach specialty plate, you only need to complete this form and pay $6.50 to change it to the new plate.
