Environmental Education & Community Outreach
We believe that environmental education is an essential part of connecting people to the natural world. Our goals are to facilitate learning that is interactive and provide information that equips people with practical ways to engage in our community and care for the world around us.
Keep Omaha Beautiful engages youth and adults through school/community-based environmental education programming. We also offer environmental education certification courses for K-12 teachers and early childhood educators.

School/Community-Based Environmental Education
Given current school challenges, this fall we are offering several new programs and resources for classrooms. Our new virtual educational programs are specifically designed to meet Nebraska content area standards for science, social studies, and English language arts for grades K-6. New resource kits are available for check out to teachers to enhance learning, whether students are in the classroom or at home.
