Each day Keep Genesee Beautiful works to encourage, educate and engage residents in creating beautiful, clean and sustainable neighborhoods, parks and open spaces throughout the City of Flint and Genesee County. Our goal is to improve communities, their environment and quality of life, by cultivating personal responsibility in our citizens. This is achieved by engaging and educating volunteers in order to extend the reach and impact of our initiatives and programs.

We believe that broad community partnerships allow us to extend the reach and impact of our initiatives and are essential to achieving sustainable, community improvement through programs such as Adopt a Park, Cultivating our Community, Community Cleanups and Recycling.

Keep Genesee County Beautiful became Michigan’s first affiliate of Keep America Beautiful in April 2004 and has received the prestigious national President’s Circle Award every year since then. In January 2016, KGCB became an official program of the Genesee County Parks.
