Keep Sedona Beautiful is a vehicle for positive change in the greater Sedona area. Our aim is to preserve the wonder of the Sedona area’s scenic natural beauty now and in the future. Our activities range from education and advocacy to hands-on tasks such as litter lifting and preserving the quality of Oak Creek to maintaining Sedona’s dark, star-studded night skies.
In 2017, Keep Sedona Beautiful, Inc. (KSB) is in its 45th year. We are a dedicated group of volunteers, people like you who share an appreciation for Sedona’s natural beauty and small town charm and who are committed to working with city, county, state and federal governments, as well as civic and business leaders to promote dialogue and encourage balance in the face of our area’s growth.
This red rock country is not just quiet azure skies above red rock palisades; it is also litter-free roadways, gentle but effective signage, awesome starry night skies, plenty of protected open spaces, buildings in harmony with the environment, and so much more. What would it be without continued preservation efforts?
The risk we all face is that the beauty that drew us here also draws more and more residents and visitors alike, and this growth, if unplanned or unchecked, can lead to irreversible damage to our most precious landscapes and wildlife habitats. The question we continue to ask is whether or not we can accommodate new residents and visitors and, at the same time, protect the natural beauty that we prize. We firmly believe the answer is yes and, with that positive attitude, we have come a long way.
