Kokomo Beautiful

 
 
Founded in 2015, the Kokomo Beautiful initiative invites citizens and organizations in Howard County to take ownership of our community by making it a clean, vibrant place to live by planting flowers, maintaining public garden areas, and removing trash and debris from our community's trails and waterways. The Alliance spearheads this initiative with support from local partners, including the City of Kokomo, Howard County Government, Country Raisin's Greenhouse, Discover Howard County Trails, Howard County Storm Water District, and the Wildcat Guardians.  
  
Kokomo Beautiful events are free and open to everyone, so bring your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers along and help the Alliance keep Kokomo beautiful for years to come! (Some activities may have age requirements for certain tasks.)
