Thank you for teaching us about parts of flowers and the forest. I learned a lot about pollinators like bees, ants, and flies.

Thank you for letting us go on this awesome field trip. My favorite part was looking at the 3 sisters. It was awesome that you guys taught me about how owls can hear a weasel 9 feet under ground

Matthew, 2nd Grader

Thank you for leading us through the Mt. Bachelor forest. My favorite part was when we saw the mountains up close.
