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.

This year, teachers and community members can take advantage of a number of exciting courses from KCEEI that:
*Provide immersive, hands-on learning through activities and field trips
*Feature engaging presenters who have a passion for teaching and a depth of   knowledge about environmental issues
*Provide teaching resources and classroom activities
*Enhance your PA academic standards knowledge base and teaching skills
*Ignite or re-energize a commitment to environmental stewardship
*Expand your networking opportunities among other formal and non-formal educators, natural resource professionals, researchers and others who share a love of our natural world

KCEEI is funded by Keystone College, and through generous private gifts and grants including those from P&G Fund of The Greater Cincinnati Foundation, Cabot Oil & Gas Corporation, and The Overlook Estate Foundation; other grants are pending. Gifts to KCEEI go directly to fund our environmental education and stewardship programs.
