Hang out and get dirty.


Smiling while planting trees in the rain? Laughing with friends while picking up trash? Caring deeply about the health happiness, and greenness of our city? Yep. You’re one of us!

Volunteers Keep Us Going.

We rely on volunteers (like you!) who are proud to live in Indianapolis, who take action for change, and who feel ownership of the environment. Indianapolis benefits from tens of thousands of KIB volunteers each year, and we’re betting you’ll feel pretty good about the hours you spend with us, too.

We plant trees, create GreenSpaces, engage students in nature, restore urban habitats, and pick up litter with the help of volunteers and donors like you. Let’s get to work!

Join a like-minded community.
Meet new people of all ages and backgrounds who share a common vision for a safer, cleaner, more beautiful Indianapolis.

Gain expertise.
All volunteers receive instructions from our trained staff. As a result, our volunteers come away with useful information and hands-on experience that they can take back to their own homes and neighborhood projects.

Make a visible impact.
Volunteers work all over Marion County, planting trees, transforming vacant lots into pocket parks, and picking up litter. KIB provides the tools, so all you need to bring is your desire for community improvement!
