Mark your calendars for events Bright n' Beautiful will be involved with throughout the year.
Keep America Beautiful Great American Cleanup
Individual Cleanups welcome through June 2023! Great American Cleanup Day took place in Billings on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22. Hundreds of neighbors took part in this wonderful Billings tradition!
We operated out of the friendly Billings Community Center in downtown Billings (360 N. 23 St) with check-in and supplies starting at 8:30 AM. Teams picked up a winter's worth of litter all around the community from 9AM to 1PM. Sound like fun? It was! Folks signed up in advance and got free supplies, loaned gear and credit for their hard work. There's still time to take part in the 2023 Great American Cleanup throughout Yellowstone County through June 2023. Contact us about your cleanup plans and we'll get you free supplies and loan you some safety vests and pickers. Email firstname.lastname@example.org, phone 406-248-6617 or find us on Facebook at BrightNBeautifulBillings. Be sure to participate in spring of 2024 as well! And thanks for keeping Yellowstone County bright n' beautiful all year long.
Yellowstone County Beautification Projects
Bright n' Beautiful has planted and maintained hardy perennial gardens at the Airport Hill 'Welcome to Billings' sign bed and near the shelter in the beautiful Shiloh Conservation Area. In 2022, BnB entered into an agreement with the Friends of Canyon Creek, Inc., to join them in keeping the Nez Perce Battlefield marker, pavilion and surrounding grounds clean and tidy in a way that honors the warriors and soldiers who died there during the Battle of Canyon Creek on September 13, 1877. The Canyon Creek Battlefield Site is located at the intersection of Buffalo Trail and Lipp Roads north of Laurel Montana. Interested in joining our corps of Canyon Creek volunteer caregivers? We're fillings slots from June through October 2023 now. Please contact Bright n' Beautiful with your interest at (406) 248-6617 or email@example.com. We welcome your participation!
