The Kutztown Environmental Advisory Commission (KEAC) is a group of community members, appointed by the elected officials, to advise them and other municipal officials about the protection, conservation, management, promotion and use of natural resources within the Borough of Kutztown. Much of this is done through educational community workshops, which are held throughout the year.

Native Plant Garden at North Park
Ripley Price, a Girl Scout working on her Gold Award project, and several volunteers planted a native plant garden at North Park on Saturday May 20, 2017. In this project supported by the Kutztown Borough’s Environmental Advisory Commission, over 500 wildflowers and grasses of 14 native plant species were planted. This garden will support pollinators, help educate the public about native plants, and hopefully help to spread native wildflowers throughout the park.
