Keep Jackson Beautiful Month is a month to celebrate our Earth and to take care of it. We encourage individuals or groups to join one of our events, we encourage you to start your own cleanup or environmental activity in your community!


We invite all Jacksonians to join Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Cleanup, the nation’s largest community improvement program, continues to grow in strength, scope and human dimension. More than 5 million volunteers mobilize each year in more than 20,000 communities (including communities right here in Mississippi) to make lasting, visible change in their communities. Neighborhoods across the city will participate during March, April, May and June with cleanup, planting, and painting events.

We're currently looking for volunteers, donors and sponsors for the upcoming.

To make this a success, we need your help.

Please Bring your own gloves or trash grabbers if you have them.

These events qualify for community service hours; certificates will be issued to those who need them (submit names to our email address)

If rain is in the forecast that morning the cleanup day will be April 15th.
