Public School Programs

Kinston Public Services staff offers technical assistance to teachers and school officials, resource materials for classrooms and students, as well as school presentations for K-12. We visit not only schools within the City of Kinston but any school within Lenoir County with a variety of programs. Programs are also given for after school groups. We involve students in water quality and stream ecology projects and presentations, NC Big Sweep and other litter cleanups.


Through the use of the EnviroScape, a hands-on watershed model, students and teachers review best management practices to prevent pollution, like maintaining buffers along streams, using other erosion control measures, taking thoughtful care of yards and homes, and picking up after pets.
