TESTIMONIAL

“For many years, KGVB has kept the shores of Lake Grapevine clean and clear of debris and trash.  Several years ago, we had major flooding in Grapevine.  As the waters began to recede, there was much work to do to clean up the shores -- it was KGVB who stepped up to help.  ”

With more than 2,000 dedicated volunteers, KGVB manages major community cleanups such as park and lakeshore litter collection, painting, planting flowers and trees, clearing invasive plant species, and numerous other projects.
