What People are Saying:

 "Thank you for doing these classes. They are the one thing that is keeping us focused and happy during this very strange time. I am learning almost as much as [my son] when I happen to be in the room. He has been really interested in plants and forest ecology since he was very small, so this is the one school type thing he is super excited to do without any pressure from me. One of his favorite parts of the class is the small size and the fact that all of the kids are truly interested in learning the material. Everyone is there because they want to be."
