Keep Indy Beautiful



We are the ones who smile when planting trees in the rain, laugh with friends as we pick up trash off our neighborhood streets, and care deeply about the health, happiness, and greenness of our city.

How do we do it? We rely on volunteers (like you!) who are proud to live in Indianapolis, who take action for change, and who feel ownership of the environment. Indianapolis benefits from the tens of thousands of KIB volunteers each year, and we’re betting you feel pretty good about the hours you spend with us, too.


Join a like-minded community: Meet new people of all ages and backgrounds who share a common vision for a safer, cleaner, more beautiful Indianapolis.


Gain expertise: All volunteers receive instructions from our trained staff. As a result, our volunteers come away with useful information and hands-on experience that they can take back to their own homes and neighborhood projects.


Make a visible impact: Volunteers work all over Marion County, planting trees, transforming vacant lots into pocket parks, and picking up litter. KIB provides the tools, so all you need to bring is your desire for community improvement!
