The greatest gifts are the compliments that come from teachers and students who love the program, and the parents who see their kids light up with a new found passion for nature and learning.
“The presentation included everything and more I would have liked my students to learn about from just a 60 minute lesson. Our third graders were so excited and interested to learn about wolves and their role in the ecosystem. The presentation included so many hands-on experiences that were suitable for all ages. Many science standards were covered in this presentation as well, which helps my students make meaning of science content we are learning about before and after the presentation.” Angela Steffanson, 3rd grade teacher, Columbia River Gorge El School, Washougal, Wa.
“I already had high expectations, and this interactive and engaging presentation exceeded them! The presentation was tailored perfectly to the ages and needs of our campers, and did so in a way that exuded such a tangible passion for wolves. The campers couldn't stop talking about what they had learned all week!” Molly Mosenthal, Adventure WILD Summer Day Camp Manager Grades 1st - 6th Portland

Wow! What an amazing presentation you gave to us. The kids were absolutely engaged and they learned so much. Your
presentation and information were so clear and organized. The kids really understand the important role wolves play in balancing the ecosystem. What a wonderful contribution you are making to the comback of wolves in our beautiful state. I already can't wait until next year! Portland 3rd Grade teacher
