“KEEP GENESEE COUNTY BEAUTIFUL
Each day Keep Genesee Beautiful is working 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.
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 for ten consecutive years. In 2014, KGCB updated its Strategic Plan which resulted in an articulated vision and guiding principles.
