Boone County Arboretum

Kenton County Parks and Recreation are grateful for their many Program, Lunch and Prize Partners. With support generated from these partnerships, their efforts and the benefits they can provide to the community are greatly magnified. IN their efforts to continue to provide entertainment, educational programs, activites and events throughout Kenton County, KCP&R has numerous partnership opportunities available. If you would like to help out, you can provide your support and begin to immediately reap the benefits of associating your name with Kenton County Parks and Recreation.

The city of Forest Park is bringing back a popular program that offers all local residents a 50% discount to make home energy improvements. The city is partnering with the Greater Cincinnati Energy Alliance to provide homeowners a full home energy assessment and access to financial incentives, which can mean savings on utility bills. The Forest Park Residential Energy Efficiency Program was launched last year, during which time 50 homes received energy efficiency upgrades.

Boone County Arboretum currently has two 6-month student internships available for the season. Internships are available to college students studying horticulture, landscape architecture or closely related fields. Benefits of the internship include:
