Keep Fishers Beautiful
Volunteerism has a profound impact on those receiving support and those donating their time to make a meaningful difference in someone else’s life and in our community. This spring, join the City of Fishers and local businesses and organizations to help Keep Fishers Beautiful (KFB)!

Created in 2014, Keep Fishers Beautiful strives to identify significant projects and connect volunteers willing to dig in and make a difference. Since inception, KFB has connected nearly 1,000 volunteers at multiple Fishers’ locations through service projects. Volunteerism comes in many shapes and sizes, and KFB works to connect volunteers with fun volunteer projects! Previous projects have included laying mulch at Fishers’ parks, removing trash in public spaces, working with residents on property home improvement projects, and even removing evasive weeds at Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve as part of Spring Service Day.

During Keep Fishers Beautiful, there are many ways to get involved! Volunteers are encouraged to consider their interests before signing up for one of the following project opportunities:

  • The Neighborhood Blitz pairs volunteers with homeowners to complete low-intensity, high-impact improvement projects community-wide,
  • Spring Service Day returns to Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve as volunteers work to remove evasive plants, and,
  • Various beautification projects will be taking place at parks facilities, community-wide.

Keep Fishers BeautifulGeneral Beautification Projects

Some of our larger volunteers groups prefer to be assigned to specific volunteer projects at local parks, and during Keep Fishers Beautiful there are opportunities to do just that! Volunteers interested in beautifying the public spaces in our community may be asked to plant flowers, place mulch or assist with trash/debris removal at local parks. 

Neighborhood Blitz

The Neighborhood Blitz pairs volunteers with homeowners to complete low-intensity, high-impact improvement projects. Volunteers lending a hand during the Neighborhood Blitz will have the opportunity to work alongside homeowners, neighbors and friends as they help support those who need an extra hand during spring cleaning, or in some cases, spring sprucing.

Spring Recycling Day

Additional details about Spring Recycling Day are still pending! Bookmark our website and stay tuned for additional information about this event. 

Spring Service Day

For the 13th consecutive year, Spring Service Day welcomes residents of all ages to Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve as we work together to protect our environment from invasive plants that pose as a threat to our native wildflowers and dominate the areas where they are found. 

New in 2016: Blitz Box

The Keep Fishers Beautiful initiative is also expanding this year to include opportunities for neighborhoods to unite and band together, year-round! Blitz Boxes will be available in an ongoing fashion throughout the year, and will include a small supply of gloves, safety glasses, garbage bags and the use of a 30 yard dumpster. Applying is easy! An HOA representative will complete the application, pledging a neighborhood clean-up that will benefit everyone. Applications should focus on the common spaces and facades, and must be completed four weeks in advance of their pledged clean-up day.

After notified, neighborhoods selected will have support from Fishers Parks & Recreation and Fishers Department of Public Works to finalize logistics and arrange delivery of the dumpster. Groups are encouraged to take photographs and document the impact the Blitz Box has on beautifying their neighborhood! Apply online to have a Blitz Box in your neighborhood sometime during 2017.
