KEC has reached over 100,000 young people from
Pre-k through high school, offering unique hands-on presentations
and eco-action programs that educate children, families and the community

Kids Ecology Corps (KEC) was established in 1998 by Daisy Miller and Leonard Solomon to provide education, cultural awareness, and inspire young people to become leaders in taking positive action to improve our environment. KEC has reached well over a hundred thousand children and their families with hands-on activities embracing earth husbandry and positive ecology values.

KEC has delivered thousands of events, eco-adventures and traditional classroom experiences. They are sometimes physically demanding; Planting native trees, clearing non-native species, establishing and rebuilding coastal mangrove sites, building and maintaining nature trails and an amazing Butterfly Garden in Fort Lauderdale’s Living Laboratory Snyder Park, Home Office to Kids Ecology Corps.

These activities are reinforced with exciting educational programs and engaging hands-on community service projects for kids and their families to together learn about our community’s ecological needs, gain an understanding of the environment, and most importantly to learn more about ourselves and nature, and the interconnectedness of all living things.
