As part of our mission, KPB encourages youth to think about their place in the environment. We offer free, green, 30 - 60 minute presentations in the classroom. Think of it as a field trip that comes to you! Best of all, KPB can be an ongoing resource for questions and further learning after we leave. When you're ready to book a presentation, click here!
