Our Schools Programs

We love to visit schools, aftercare programs, camps, clubs, and other children's groups! Programs typically last 30-45 minutes and are free-of-charge. 

Talking Tree Presentation

The Talking Tree has been part of KKB's education program for years. This interactive environmental stewardship lesson teaches students about the function and importance trees and may be paired with a book and game. 


Papermaking is a hands-on recycling activity that teaches students how to reuse old paper to make something new.
