What We Do

Keep Omaha Beautiful (KOB) fosters environmental and community stewardship through education, service, and advocacy.

Your donation helps support environmental education programming, volunteer opportunities, and community events that inspire environmental and community stewards of all ages. Our programs consist of the following:

Environmental Education & Training:

  • KOB believes that environmental education is an essential part of connecting people to the natural world. We engage youth and adults through school/community-based environmental education programming and service-learning projects.
  • We also offer environmental education certification courses for K-12 teachers and early childhood educators.
  • In addition, we conduct the Omaha Recycles Right digital-outreach campaign, which helps residents learn how to reduce waste and recycle correctly.

Trees for Omaha: This program is a partnership between KOB and the City's Parks & Recreation Department. It addresses the considerable loss of our community's ash trees due to the invasive Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) beetle, by planting a diverse stock of native trees in Omaha parks.

Litter Cleanups: We coordinate thousands of volunteers each year and provide equipment to pick up litter in local neighborhoods and public areas such as parks, trails, and streams, in order to ensure Omaha is a safe and healthy place for everyone to enjoy.
