I recently became a Board member after I asked to be. Why ask? , I was totally impressed with this Organization after being a volunteer for several years on the Christmas Tree Recyling Program and the Litter Index. I truly believe they/we do a great job.

Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful is a collective community effort centered around litter abatement and proper disposal education. KTMB gathers thousands of volunteers around a common passion--a love and respect of the Truckee Meadows we call home. This incredible network of grass roots activism has weathered the tough economic times we've seen and survived as one of the regions remaining environmental non profit organizations thanks to the efforts of a strong executive director, staff, board and support community. Go KTMB!

KTMB is a small but mighty organization that has a strong presence in Northern Nevada. As key champions for leading volunteer litter reduction and education efforts, KTMB fills in where local governmental organizations are not able. The annual Christmas Tree and phone book recycling programs, along with efforts of the Illegal Dumping Task Force, are programs most of the residents in the area are aware of - a true mark of KTMB's success.

KTMB is a tremendous organization that not only helps keep our community clean and beautiful, but helps educate and engage youth to protect our open spaces and special places for future generations. I am proud to donate and volunteer for this fantastic non-profit, that does so much, with very few staff and limited financial resources.

One of the best organized non-profits that I have had the pleasure of being associated with. Events are very well organized and never a shortage of volunteers. The impact of KTMB is noticed with every park visit, a stroll along the river, or a drive in the open space. I am proud to be a member of a group that is so focused on making our community even better.
