EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN AND TEENAGERS

We have active educational programs at several elementary schools, middle schools, and high schools in the area.  We have also done programs for boy and girl scout troops and would love to work with more scouts.  Programs are age appropriate and we will work with you to design a program that fits your group.  Activities can include songs, games, trips to a creek, viewing animals through the microscope, and lectures.
