“For many years, KGVB has kept the shores of Lake Grapevine clean and clear of debris and trash.  Several years ago, we had major flooding in Grapevine.  As the waters began to recede, there was much work to do to clean up the shores -- it was KGVB who stepped up to help.  ”

Our Mission

Corporate Volunteers at a Cleanup Event

Grapevine, Texas is an award-winning community for many reasons, one of which is its commitment toward environmental stewardship through large organized events, as well as grassroots efforts of citizens and community groups in caring for our community. 

Originally established in 1992, Keep Grapevine Beautiful (KGVB) officially incorporated through the City of Grapevine Parks and Recreation Department in 2005 and is a 501c3 charitable corporation. KGVB is the local affiliate for the Keep America Beautiful and Keep Texas Beautiful programs.  Program funding comes through the Parks & Recreation Department, donations and corporate sponsorships.

With more than 2,000 dedicated volunteers, KGVB manages major community cleanups such as park and lakeshore litter collection, painting boat docks and buildings, planting flowers and trees, clearing invasive plant species, and numerous other projects. Since 2007, more than a million dollars in volunteer time has been donated to the City of Grapevine through KGVB activities!
