Spring school fieldtrip season has wrapped up at LLC and it was a very busy one indeed. A total of 831 children, their teachers and chaperones from 11 schools participated in programs this year. These trips are the culminating experience for the students and their teachers connected with our Nature in the Classroom program. This school year we had 108 classrooms enrolled. We want to send a special thank you to the NIC teachers and for their dedication to bringing nature to the classroom of so many students.
In last months notes I mentioned our 30th Annual Wildflower Sale. I am happy to tell you that the sale raised over $17,000 to support programming, like Nature in the Classroom, at the Conservancy. So thank you to all who purchased wildflowers and the many volunteers who make the sale happen.
Summer is here, the woods and prairies are green and the trails are open from dawn to dusk. Hope to see you there.
