Colorado Springs — Preserving Colorado’s nature and beauty is one of Stephen Singers’ top priorities.

His group, Keeping Colorado Beautiful, was formed in August 2020.

KCB’s mission is to maintain Colorado’s beauty and eliminate potential leftover damage.

“We all move to Colorado because we love the outdoors and the beauty of Colorado,” said Singer, co-founder of Keeping Colorado Beautiful.

With over 6,000 backers and volunteers, this group removes graffiti from destroyed rock formations.

“It’s terrible. It downplays our natural environment and the beauty of the state. It doesn’t enhance the beauty of nature,” said hiker Lindy Marx.

The singer says it was his frustration that took action when he saw graffiti on the rock formations of Colorado Springs.

“We keep walking past trash, graffiti, and all the horrifying things some people have decided to do. It just keeps building and eventually gets out of hand,” Singer said. It was.

Many groups fill the graffiti as a solution, but the singer believes it creates another canvas for the tagger to continue working.

Instead, KCB uses environmentally friendly solvents.

“We apply it to the surface, sit for a while to work, and then blow it off with a pressure washer,” says Singer.

In the work done by KCB, hikers in southern Colorado feel grateful for the people in our community watching over us.

“It’s a great gift for everyone here that you don’t have to worry about seeing such things,” Marcus said.

Maintain the natural beauty that Colorado must offer.

If you know someone who has influenced our community, no matter how big or small, we want to hear from you!
