What They're Saying

The primary highlight was seeing every student engaged in their learning. The program was frankly invaluable. My son grew to appreciate everything from the contents of an owls’ pellet and the beauty of a grazing deer to the flight pattern of a woodpecker and the opportunity to compost his apple core.
