Environmental Education Classes
KCB offers monthly classes and seminars on practical green living ideas. The classes tend to focus on growing food, composting, smart irrigation and planting colorful and ecofriendly landscapes. Most of the classes are held at the Biodiversity Education Center, although we occasionally partner with Coppell Community Garden and school gardens in the community to host hands-on demonstrations off-site. All classes are free to the public, registration at www.Coppellactivities.com.
During the first Saturday in October, the Biodiversity Education Center hosts a Fall Frolic event. People of all ages are welcome to join us in spreading wildflower seeds in designated areas of Coppell Nature Park, including our remnant of the Blackland Prairie. Gather your friends, family, Scout troop and neighbors for a fun, free event. KCB Teens host an additional wildflower seeding at Moore Road Park in November. Details for the 2019 seeding will be announced on the KCB Facebook page.
Take an active role in cleaning up Coppell streets, parks, and neighborhoods! This year around program, encourages community groups from all around town come together to do litter cleanups and beautification projects. In the past, residents hosted dozens of litter clean-up, spruced up fences, pulled weeds, and handed out plant starts. Getting involved is easy! If you have a project that will make our community cleaner and greener, fill out this request form to have the City of Coppell sponsor your supplies. For further questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organize a litter cleanup - Choose a location where you notice a need and fill out a request for clean-up supplies. We will provide trash bags, gloves, and trash pickers upon request. You can do this year-round, but t-shirts will be provided for groups that participate in the annual April event which contributes to a nationwide effort, the Great American Cleanup. Clean Coppell volunteers that wear their t-shirts to Earthfest get a free treat!
Organize a beautification project – Be creative! If you have a project in mind and the people willing to do it, you can submit an application to have KCB sponsor the supplies. The project should benefit the community through preservation or beautification. Some ideas include:
Earthfest is a celebration of Coppell's commitment to the environment - an entertaining and educational experience!
