Environmental Action & Education

Volunteers Working Together?From keeping the city and suburbs scenic to maintaining the region’s delicate ecosystem, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful is committed to looking after the local environment. This nonprofit organization tackles everything from community awareness to hands-on cleanup projects.

To make an impact and get people involved, they hold lots of events throughout the year, including their annual Great American Cleanup. It’s a collaborative effort to pick up trash all over Hillsborough County.

They also offer educational programs to classrooms and community groups. They’ve even partnered with the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Department of the Hillsborough County Public Schools. This helps students learn about the Tampa Bay Watershed and gives them an opportunity to take a fun field trip to the Florida Learning Garden.

To create that kind of awareness, they hold fundraising events throughout the year, too. Since 1991, their Tropical Nights Gala has a been a fun way to promote environmentalism and celebrate success.

How You Can Help

There are lots of ways you can get involved and help Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful. For starters, you can make a simple donation. For every dollar they receive, $22.50 is put back into the community through service and environmental education.

Businesses and corporations can also choose to become a sponsor. Thanks to their long list of sponsors, they’ve been able to remove over 450,000 pounds of trash, plant over 8,000 trees, and host over 900 community service events.
