Environmental Education

We believe that if we want to see sustainable behavior change in Cincinnati, we need to start by educating young children. Teaching children to use resources wisely and to take care of their surroundings will have a positive impact on their health and wellbeing as well as the future of Cincinnati. This is why we continue to provide free environmental education to Cincinnati public, private, and parochial schools. Through classroom presentations, assemblies, and field trips, we are growing green habits in over 20,000 students each year.

“The programs provided by Keep Cincinnati Beautiful are invaluable assets to our AP Environmental Science program. Without them, many of our hands on experiences would not be possible.”

– William Schnure, Walnut Hills High School

“Keep Cincinnati Beautiful has made it possible for us to maintain a consistent environmental focus over the years; we are able to concentrate on teaching and enriching our students while KCB provides behind-the-scenes support to keep our green programs running. We look forward to many more years of continued partnership with Keep Cincinnati Beautiful!”

– Ann Myers, Covedale Elementary School Teacher
