What We Do

Keep Omaha Beautiful fosters environmental and community stewardship through education, service, and advocacy. We offer a wide range of programs, events, and educational services that promote environmental knowledge, sustainable lifestyles, community beautification, and pollution prevention.

For Giving Tuesday, we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight how we are transforming the Omaha community through environmental education!

We believe it is important to ensure everyone in our community has the opportunity to learn more about the environment and how to care for it. In turn, we all can help promote a healthier environment and a more equitable and sustainable city.

Our environmental education programs are data-driven, hands-on, and nature-based. We work with schools and community groups throughout Omaha, teaching learners of all ages about pollution prevention, waste reduction, sustainable living, and more. We also train and certify educators in renowned environmental education curriculum, empowering them to inspire their students to be knowledgeable and committed stewards of the environment.

2020 brought a unique set of challenges, but we didn’t let that stop us! We moved our environmental education programs online, allowing us to reach even more youth and adult learners.

By donating to KOB on Giving Tuesday, you will equip more learners with the knowledge and skills to address the serious environmental challenges we face today and in our future. But the good doesn't stop there.

Any amount you donate to our organization today will be matched by our amazing sponsor, Nebraska Medicine! Not only are these heroes keeping our community safe, but Nebraska Medicine is also committed to protecting the planet, believing that our community thrives with a healthy environment.
