Keep Indianapolis Beautiful is a nonprofit with a mission to engage diverse communities to create vibrant public places, helping people and nature thrive. Annually, we work with about 20,000 volunteers on nearly 900 community projects, such as tree plantings, litter cleanups, greenspace creation, mural painting, and habitat restoration.
Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, which plants 3,000 to 4,000 trees in the city each year, has been collecting and gathering data to help guide its planting plans for more than a dozen years. Now, it is digging even deeper into that data and working even more closely with city government to make sure those plans benet all areas of the city in a more equitable way.
