"Great outing! We really enjoyed the trip and the educator was fully prepared and super professional knowing many facts to share with all the kids." - Vanessa Bella
"Kindergarten kids love action and anything playful. They will remember parent helper Mark, dressed up as a Mayfly. They also enjoyed just finding the bugs in the pond and pouring water on the d watershed display to learn about water flow. The students, especially in the afternoon...., appreciate as much hands on learning they can get so while I gathered more information from Shanoon's presentation, the students were all about mucking about in the pond:)" - Wendy West
"See my email sent on June 20 to admin." - Catherine MacKinnon
"Very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, well-prepared and engaged all students." - Cheryl Makeiv
"Sometimes there was a little bit too long of talk and too complicated for Kindergarten/grade 1, otherwise it was really great." - Carolyn Ziefflie
"She was fantastic and really bonded with the students immediately. She was very knowledgeable. She was well prepared and kind." - Kim Matson
"We loved our time with Shanoon! She is so full of knowledge that she is willing to share with kids of all ages and wonders. We loved the hands on exploration of the aquatic life and the fun games around the trail. It was a fantastic day of sunshine and learning!" - Vanessa Bella
