From Our Friends...

Why Do I Volunteer?

I chose to volunteer at KBB to gain experience while giving back to the local community through various environmental projects. Interacting with fellow interns and community members has been truly rewarding, and I look forward to a long future with the organization.

Why am I Member?

           

“I am a member of Keep Brazos Beautiful because of the great impact KBB has on our community.  We educate kids and adults alike on ways to protect the beauty of our environment.  Plus, there are so many ways to take part, like cleaning up our streets in the Texas Trash-Off and planting new flowers in our Demonstration gardens.  I love how easy KBB makes it for me to get my hands dirty to keep our community clean and green!”
