Keep Coppell Beautiful

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Keep Coppell Beautiful is a citizen committee that organizes opportunities to preserve and beautify our community through waste reduction, litter prevention, beautification, and environmental stewardship. Take part in one of the dozens of programs, events or volunteer projects that take place throughout the year! Apply to join the committee 


Environmental Education Classes

KCB offers monthly classes and seminars on practical green living ideas. The classes tend to focus on growing food, composting, smart irrigation and planting colorful and ecofriendly landscapes. Most of the classes are held at the Biodiversity Education Center, although we occasionally partner with Coppell Community Garden and school gardens in the community to host hands-on demonstrations off-site. All classes are free to the public with no registration required. View current schedule of classes.​​​

Wildflower Seeding

This year, volunteers will have the opportunity to seed areas of  Coppell Nature Park as part of the Biodiversity Education Center's Fall Frolic event on October 7th. ​​The seedings are set to begin at 11​​​​​ a.m. and wrap up quickly so please arrive on time!​​

Each October community groups of all ages come together to spread wildflower seeds in designated areas of Coppell parks. Gather your friends, family, Scout troop and neighbors for a fun, free event. Reminisce on what Coppell looked like as a prairie and do the “buffalo stomp” with the herd of seeders. 


Clean Coppell

Take an active role in cleaning up Coppell streets, parks, and neighborhoods! Each April, community groups from all around town come together to do litter cleanups and beautification projects. In 2017, residents hosted dozens of litter clean-up, spruced up fences, pulled weeds,  and handed out plant starts. Getting involved is easy! Request project supplies.​

Organize a litter cleanup - Choose a location where you notice a need and fill out a request for clean-up supplies.  We will provide trash bags, gloves, and trash pickers upon request. You can do this year-round, but t-shirts will be provided for groups that participate in the annual April event which contributes to a nationwide effort, the Great American Cleanup. Clean Coppell volunteers that that wear their t-shirts to Earthfest get a free treat!

Organize a beautification project – Be creative! If you have a project in mind and the people willing to do it, you can submit an application to have KCB sponsor the supplies. The project should benefit the community through preservation or beautification. Some ideas include:
  • Planting a monarch waystation to attract butterflies
  • Restoring shared gardens such as community or school gardens. 
  • Helping an elderly or disabled neighbor meet code requirements for their yard.
  • Graffiti removal

EcoCoppell Earthfest 

Earthfest is a celebration of Coppell’s commitment to the environment - an entertaining and educational experience! Visit the many environmental education booths to learn how you can lead a more sustainable lifestyle. Don’t forget to shop the plant sale, grab a bite to eat and enjoy a lively performance by Vocal Trash.

The fun includes live music, food, artisan and green living vendors, arts and crafts, photo booths, face painting, and interactive environmental education booths.  The event also hosts an annual cleanup/fix up station where people can take advantage of free document shredding, bulk trash drop off, and donating household goods. 

If you have a green project or product to showcase, you are welcome to fill out a vendor application for the event. Email kcb@coppelltx.gov if the application is not yet available below. In 2018, Earthfest will take place on Saturday, April 14th.
