Environmental Education ISN'T JUST FOR KIDS!

Environmental education isn't only for children and it doesn’t have to happen in a classroom! At the Frick Environmental Center, the education staff believes in the importance of environmental education for individuals of all ages and backgrounds. For adults 50+, environmental education can be as simple as getting healthy, active, and green out in nature—and at Environmental Center, there are plenty of opportunities to do so while connecting to like-minded members of the community. 


Parks do not exist without people. We restore parks for your joy and well-being. Pittsburghers need spaces where fathers can play catch with their sons, couples reconnect, family’s picnic. Parks, in return, do more than we realize. They clean the air, filter stormwater, lower stress…provide a natural sanctuary in forests of steel and glass surrounded by rivers of asphalt. Like anything alive, if neglected a park will suffer. And ultimately perish.

We believe in the power of parks. We are all in. Are you?
