KTMB is a responsible and responsive nonprofit. The organization applies for our competitive grants and receives funding because of its excellent work and comprehensive reporting. When community members call to get recommendations of where to volunteer, KTMB is top-of-mind. It does a great job of not only coordinating volunteers but appreciating them as well. Glad to know this organization and its staff!

Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful is one of the best non-profits that I have ever worked with. The level of community commitment and professionalism demonstrated by this organization rivals none. Volunteering or participating as a board or committee member with KTMB is an extremely rewarding experience that I recommend to everyone looking to give back to the community.

KTMB is well organized and easy to volunteer with, since there are set dates well in advance of clean-ups. There are also coordinator positions always open for those who would like to organize volunteers. Additionally, there are tree planting programs, surveys and environmental education it's members participate in.

I volunteer for special projects and serve on the program committee with KTMB. In the past 3 years I have enjoyed working on community clean ups, recycling programs and tree planting projects as a coordinator. The staff and volunteers are wonderful to work with and I can see an immediate visual benefit for the community - less trash, more trees, nicer parks. As a landscape architect having designed many area parks it is very concerning seeing the lack of upkeep and vandalism. KTMB provides volunteers for park maintenance to show that local residents care about our parks and open spaces. Additionally they coordinate with volunteers from businesses for adopt a park and adopt a spot, further expanding their reach into the community.

As Chair of the Truckee River Fund, which supports KTMB's Truckee River Cleanup, I can whole-heartedly endorse this group for their ability to harness 100's of volunteers and get real cleanup work done. Not studies, not meetings, actual work along the River. Thank you KTMB!Janet Phillips, Reno

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.
