KEEP TRUCKEE MEADOWS BEAUTIFUL
April 25, 2012

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!

KEEP TRUCKEE MEADOWS BEAUTIFUL
April 5, 2010

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.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the grass roots efforts making a true impact in the community.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

community-oriented and people who believe in the cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

eliminate litter and increase education in the Truckee Meadows. it would be a true example of how a grass roots organization can truly impact a community.

Ways to make it better...

More volunteers and residents would become engaged with this important group.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the people involved with KTMB are diverse and believe in the mission.
