ABOUT US

Keep Wakulla County Beautiful (KWCB) is non-profit 501(c)3.  It is the Wakulla County affiliate of Keep Florida Beautiful and Keep America Beautiful (KAB) organization and is in good standing.

Each year KWCB does projects that have a positive impact on our county.  According to the KAB Cost Benefit analysis in our KAB annual reports, for every dollar spent, an average of $11.00 worth of benefit is realized.  This value is calculated to include the dollar value of volunteer time, donated goods, private, non-government monies raised through fundraising, awards and grant funding (not including the current Litter Grant).  Since 2008 KWCB has provided benefits to the County in excess of $1,000,000.00.

KWCB’s focus is on litter control, beautification, and recycling education. It is our goal to expand our community outreach through increased educational opportunities,

Adopt-A-Road currently has 97 miles of local county roads covered by volunteers who clean a minimum of four times a year.  We hope to expand those numbers in the near future by advertising to get more roads adopted, purchasing signs and replenishing supplies to offset the personal costs to these volunteers.

On the third Saturday of September we host the annual local Coastal Cleanup in conjunction with the Ocean Conservancy, International Coastal Cleanup. The International Coastal Cleanup brings together volunteers from all over the world to clean the shorelines in 52 countries on the same day.  Historically, this single event, has brought volunteers to our county from as far away as the Netherlands and in numbers in excess of 1000 participants.

On the day of the event, we also provide garbage bags, gloves, and pickers.  We have a contest with a cash prize for collection of the most cigarette butts. After the cleanup everyone is invited to come back to Woolley Park for a free picnic lunch, all complimentary and supported by the donations we receive.
