Kokomo Beautiful

 
 
Founded in 2015, the Kokomo Beautiful initiative invites residents 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. The Alliance spearheads this initiative through partnerships with the city of Kokomo, Dave Lybrook of The Garden, Howard County, Wildcat Guardians, Howard County Stormwater District, Hawg Heaven, Discover Howard County Trails and Sunbelt Rentals.
 
Keep 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.)
