As the current Volunteer Coordinator for Washoe County Parks, I have the pleasure of working very closely with Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB). KTMB refers a large percentage of the organizations that want to do cleanups in Washoe County parks to us, as well as helping to find groups to adopt our parks and trails. Not only do they provide support in the form of volunteers, but will also assist with any needed tools or supplies. In addition, KTMB's annual Great Community Cleanup and Truckee River Cleanup are absolutely instrumental in the overall beautification and upkeep of Washoe County's parks and open spaces. The staff at KTMB never hesitates to tackle a big project and will go to great lengths to achieve their goals. I am always inspired by their passion and am so grateful for all of the assistance they provide. I can't imagine our community without KTMB keeping it beautiful!
I started working with Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB) as the County representative on their illegal dumping task force (seeks to end illegal dumping, particularly on public lands). I am still involved in that task force, but have assumed a broader role as a facilitator and enabler. What impressed, and continue to impress, me about KTMB is the dedication of their staff to make a difference in our community. KTMB staff selects projects of value to the community, and that triggered both me and my wife to volunteer for KTMB sponsored events to help clean and educate our community. I am really impressed with the "range" of volunteers who are attracted to KTMB events in order to clean our community. Volunteers range from high school students, to young professionals, to 4 wheel outdoor sports enthusiasts, to families. KTMB provides value to our community.
As a professional code compliance supervisor, I was invited to help Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful seek ways to reduce unlawful dumping on public and private lands. I continue to work with KTMB towards this goal, and we have taken major strides towards educating the public about unlawful dumping, informing enforcement officials and judges about penalties for those caught dumping, and (most importantly) significantly reducing unlawful dumping. However, the goals of KTMB are much broader and I was truly impressed by their community outreach, enthusiasm, and dedication - so I have volunteered on several occasions to clean up areas and assist with Christmas tree recycling. KTMB fills a unique role within our community and without them our community would be a poorer place to live. Thanks to KTMB, its staff, and their enthusiastic volunteers.
Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful is truly a great non-profit that has made and continues to make strides in the Reno-Sparks area by educating residents on the many benefits of a clean community. Furthermore, the organization and its leaders are experts in moblizing volunteers. By engaging thousands of volunteers each year, KTMB has created a culture of civic engagement in the community.
KTMB is a great organization that motivates Truckee Meadows residents to get involved and take pride in their community. Through programs like the River Cleanup and Christmas Tree Recycling, KTMB improves the quality of life of our community by working to reduce waste and educating the community on how they can keep their area beautiful. The Reno-Sparks area wouldn't be what it is today with out this organization.
Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful that says it all. That is what they do keep the Truckee Meadows Beautiful. The assistance I receive from this organization is irreplaceable. The City of Sparks owes a great big thank you to KTMB.
Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful benefits so many within the Truckee Meadows. The great community clean up and the river clean up are two of the most successful events I have ever witnessed. This organization is without a doubt a five star nonprofit.
Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful is a tireless champion for maintaining our quality of life in the Truckee Meadows. Their events span the arena from community cleanups to Christmas tree recycling to invasive weed removal. If it were not for KTMB, our open spaces would be filled with trash. KTMB raises public awareness and pride in our special area. Way to go!
