2021 cleanups looked a little different than in years past. Gallatin Beautiful is shifting its focus to encouraging individuals, organizations, schools, clubs, and civic groups to tackle cleanups independently. We have equipped 200 volunteers this year and they have cleaned up various areas all over town collecting over 4900 lbs. of trash as of August 10 2021!
Programs like Clean Gallatin and Adopt a Street and Stream enable us to come alongside schools churches, civic organizations and even individuals who have an interest in keeping Gallatin Beautiful.
