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 residents through school/community-based environmental education activities and by offering teacher environmental education certification courses.
School/Community-Based Environmental Education
As part of our commitment to educating people about issues connected to environmental stewardship, we conduct hands-on activities and presentations at no charge to schools and community groups. Our educational activities and presentations are designed to integrate with an organization/teacher’s current curriculum and incorporate service-learning elements.

Teacher Environmental Education Certification
We offer professional development workshops that train and certify educators in three of the most well-respected environmental education curricula: Project Learning Tree, Project Wet, & Project Wild. Through these workshops, participants become certified in the respective environmental education curriculum and gain the knowledge and hands-on experiences to help engage young learners in environmental education activities.
