Students spend their day at a local conservation area/park. While we are largely child-led, we will offer workshops each session relating to basic survival skills and observational skills. Students will have access to a variety of resources and tools to enhance their experience, and experienced educators will help facilitate a meaningful, engaging and supportive environment for the group and individuals.
Funding is available for residents of the Town of Lincoln through the Grow Prosper Belong fund.
