Keep Kern Beautiful looking to engage County residents to beautify communities
Keep Kern Beautiful

Keep America Beautiful (KAB), the nation’s leading community improvement nonprofit organization, has launched its 23rd annual Great American Cleanup (GAC) which began in late March and continues through June 20. Keep Kern Beautiful (KKB), a local community-based KAB affiliate, joins in on the Great American Cleanup action with the purpose to engage its community residents on Saturday, May 8, and May 15 for a day of cleaning up and beautifying different communities within the County.
This will be the first time KKB initiates a cleanup event that coincides with KAB’s Great American Cleanup.
“We are looking to the community to help support this event and by signing up and dedicating your time to a cleanup effort, it would mean a lot to KKB,” said Zechariah Garcia, committee coordinator of Keep Kern Beautiful.
KKB’s main objective for the GAC event is to help remove litter and debris from local parks, neighborhood roads, nature trails and playgrounds.
Keep Kern Beautiful volunteers will have the option of either joining a small-scale, socially distant group to help clean up at designated locations or the option to safely do their own, individual cleanup effort. To sign up as a Keep Kern Beautiful volunteer for the Great American Cleanup, please visit www.kernpublicworks.com.
We ask that all volunteers please follow safe social distancing and face-covering guidelines. California Department of Public Health Face Coverings Guidance can be located on their website. For the health and safety of all, face coverings will be required during the event.
Cleanup supplies will be available at the designated cleanup locations. We encourage individuals to reuse items such as a grocery bag to collect trash to help reduce waste.
