Help us go back to school!

Environmental education is KRB’s main mission. Our educators are busy year-round in schools across the county. They engage kids – from tots to teens – in fun, hands-on activities. Our EARTH B.E.A.T and ROCKLAND P.L.U.S. programs take place in elementary, middle and high schools. They are wonderful experiential programs that help hundreds of students make meaningful connections to their curriculum and their community.

Unfortunately, due to funding cuts, our environmental education programs are under pressure. Unless we raise funds from caring individuals like you, we will have to make significant cuts and scale back our plans to reach underserved parts of the county.  So many children would miss out on these unique and vital programs. Please donate to our Environmental Education programs to ensure a cleaner, greener future for us all!

Donate by September 12th and you’ll be entered to win a Target Gift Card worth $100 and receive a Free Reusable Lunch Bag!

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Was a Success!!

 Thanks to Board Member Tom Kyle and our many KRB Volunteers for making this rescue a success.  The total for this rescue was 239 carts of which 229 were returned to the original stores and 10 were taken to Teplitz (to be recycled).  We did 100% of Nanuet, Pearl River, Spring Valley and part of New City.  The cart winner was Stop and Shop with 44 carts followed by Home Goods at 22 &  The Rockland Farmers Market took all 18 of the no name carts.
