Keep Sedona Beautiful has joined the growing list of local non-profits and businesses supporting the Sedona Trail Keepers program. The Trail Keepers program allows organizations to sponsor a trail by financially committing to sustain and maintain existing trails. Keep Sedona Beautiful views this effort as a great example of local interests collaborating effectively to enhance access to our beautiful red rock country in a responsible and environmentally sensitive way.

Rating: 5 stars  

Keep Sedona Beautiful (KSB) is beginning its 44th year as the environmental steward of the Greater Sedona Area. KSB has initiated many projects and programs to fulfill its mission. One that is close to my heart is protecting our dark sky. In 2013 KSB brought together Sedona businesses, residents, city officials, and various public and private organizations to figure out a way to project one of Sedona’s most treasured assets—our dark skies. After months of collaborative efforts, KSB submitted an application to the International Dark-Sky Association for their coveted Dark-Sky Community designation. This application included hundreds of letters of support and a copy of Sedona’s outdoor lighting ordinance that protects our night skies from light pollution. The IDA recognized Sedona as a steward of the night skies and awarded the designation. Sedona was the eighth city in the world to be designated as an International Dark-Sky Community.
