    Wonderful! Our naturalist let them be kids and they were smiling all day. She put her trust in them and challenged them with extra information about nature interspersed throughout the day. ~Bethpage, Grade 7
    How lucky we were to get our Naturalist! Not only was she very knowledgeable about the habitats and organisms, but her enthusiasm was contagious.
    Each student was completely engaged and curious :-) ~ Oyster Bay teacher; Grade 3 
    Robbins Lane loves coming to Brookville and working with your naturalists! ~ Syosset teacher , grade 5
    Our naturalist really understood middle schoolers. She  quickly connected with our students and had realistic expectations of them (which they surpassed!) What a great day! ~ Syosset Southwoods MS, Grade 7
    Our naturalist was positive, enthusiastic and kind. The program was amazing! I cannot say enough about it. it is exactly what our kids need! ~Uniondale, California Ave. Elem., Grade 1 
    I really appreciated and admired how the naturalist communicated with, engaged and managed the students. She used every moment as an opportunity to learn. ~ Herricks, MS, Grade 6 
    Our naturalist did a phenomenal job of checking the students' prior knowledge and then adjusted his content to their level. You could feel his passion for the geology topics that he covered. Many students referred to this being the best trip that they have taken while in high school! ~ Bellmore-Merrick ,Calhoun HS, Grades 11 & 12. APES
