The Academy in the Woodlands, Where Nature Is Your Teacher!

Keystone College’s Environmental Education Institute (KCEEI) offers a variety of hands-on educational activities for those interested in learning about, exploring, embracing, protecting and enjoying our natural world. KCEEI is also committed to enhancing the teaching experience by providing hands-on, inquiry based science and environmental education to educators using nature as a laboratory. Our KCEEI naturalists are always happy to customize a field day to meet the interests of your group.

KCEEI's courses and workshops provide a wonderful learning atmosphere. Keystone College's 165-acre Woodland Campus, ponds, streams, wetlands, Lake Manataka Environmental Field Station, and Little Rocky Glen provide unparalleled opportunities.

KCEEI is funded by Keystone College, and through generous private gifts and grants.  We wish to extend our gratitude to the  P&G Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundationand The Overlook Estate Foundation for their ongoing support.  Gifts to KCEEI go directly to fund our environmental education and stewardship programs.
