Keep Noblesville Beautiful was one of 20 organizations in Indiana that received a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation during its nature grant cycle The kinetic sculpture, which will be created by artist Scott Stottlemyer, will serve as a visual reminder to pedestrians and drivers of the importance of nature and green spaces in Noblesville.

"Through this sculpture and pollinator garden, Keep Noblesville Beautiful seeks to not only beautify Noblesville, but to promote pollination of our native plants and the important role it plays in climate resiliency." said Darren Peterson, president of KNB.

Peterson, who also serves as a Noblesville city councilman, said Duke Energy is a key corporate partner to the Noblesville community and expressed appreciation for its support of the revitalization project.

Keep Noblesville Beautiful which plans to install the sculpture and native vegetation this fall, will work with the Noblesville Parks Dept. and the city to select vegetation and upkeep the pollinator garden.

This forthcoming roundabout sculpture at Hague and Carrigan roads in Noblesville celebrates the area’s tourism and aquatic recreation opportunities. Keep Noblesville Beautiful awarded $5K public art activation grant. Keep Noblesville Beautiful was one among 49 organizations awarded almost $250,000 by the Indiana Destination Development Corporation (IDDC) to support public art projects throughout the state.

Recent Riverside Cemetery Peony Planting

Embrace the Trace

It was a successful SERVE weekend for KNB.  Not only does Embrace the Trace look fantastic, but we enjoyed working with SERVE, Janus Developmental, Lions Club, City of Noblesville and Noblesville Parks Foundation.

Thanks so much to Jenna Romens for coordinating the jobs with SERVE, Janus and the Lions Club.   Molly Martin & Dagny Zupin were there to man the KNB Booth, but ended up helping us dig and plant,  thanks to both of them!  Thanks to Patty Johnson at the Noblesville Street Department and Tim Stottlemeyer at Wastewater for loaning us tools and the Tree Board tent.  An extra big thank you to Bruce Neal at the Noblesville Parks Department…without him we could not have completed the project in a timely manner.  He took Jack to buy the plants, delivered the plants and mulch and offered us much needed advice on sod removal, planting and mulching.   A good project we can be proud of.

Embrace the Trace was finally handed off to the Noblesville Parks Foundation and they were happy to be taking possession of it! 

Clean up and Planting at Riverside Cemetery

Friday’s clean up and planting at Riverside Cemetery was not only a big success but a lot of fun too.  We had 8 volunteers, all really good workers and the job was done in less than 2 hours and looks great.  Evelyn Lees who is in charge of the cemetery for the City of Noblesville came by after we were done and gave her stamp of approval.  It was a rewarding project.  Thanks so much to everyone who came and to the City of Noblesville Street and Parks Department who helped us out.  We couldn’t have done it without them! 

Stay in Touch with KNB!

Thank You KNB Volunteers!
