Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. (KIB) is an environmental and community nonprofit. Our mission is to engage diverse communities to create vibrant public places, helping people and nature thrive.

In a typical year, KIB supports about 800 community improvement projects with more than 13,000 volunteers. We plant trees, restore habitat, create parks, pick up litter and heavy dumping, and introduce youth to environmental careers:

  • AES Indiana Project Greenspace: KIB partners with neighborhood-based organizations to turn vacant and underused lots into greenspaces and pocket parks.
  • Community Forestry: KIB plants more than 3,000 native trees each year to capture stormwater, lower city temperatures, support wildlife, and clean air and water.
  • Great Indy Cleanup: KIB helps residents combat heavy litter in public spaces through large-scale cleanups.
  • Adopt-A-Block: KIB recruits “block captains” to keep streets clean, with resources supplied by KIB.
  • Youth Tree Team: In this seasonal job, high school students and young adults improve their community through tree maintenance.
  • Urban Naturalist program: Launched in 2015, this program offers college students experience removing invasive plants, planting native landscapes, and maintaining green infrastructure while connecting with potential employers.
  • Habitat restoration: KIB oversees large-scale habitat restoration along Indianapolis waterways. 

For nearly 50 years, we have partnered with neighborhoods, the public sector, and local companies and community organizations to achieve our vision of a beautiful city. We see an Indianapolis that is loved, cared for, and ecologically rich—a city defined by strong neighborhoods, inspired places, and a clean, flourishing environment.
