Here are reviews from people who have taken our intergenerational programs:
“A great science and nature experience for both the kids and their grandparents. Wonderful balance of field trips, lab experiences, discussions and fun.”
— MARY ANN FROM OURAY, CO
“'Hands On-Feet Wet' is the perfect description of this first-rate science program on the ecology of the mid-eastern seacoast. The subjects covered were of interest to this grandparent as they were to my granddaughter, and sharing this experience with her was indeed special.”
— ETHEL FROM NEW YORK, NY
