    Our naturalist are the best!

    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

    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
    "Truly a positive experience from start to finish. We felt fortunate to be paired with such a knowledgeable guide!" 
    "Paul led a group of 10 students with moderate/severe intellectual disabilities. He was an excellent motivator and adapted tasks and verbal directions to promote success in trying something new, taking risks and teamwork." ~ Gr. 8 Teacher
    "This was my first time to Brookville so I didn't know what to expect. Other teachers speak so fondly about the program and now I see why! My students and I look forward to many more adventures in Brookville!" ~ Hewlett Woodmere, Gr 3 Teacher

    We had 5 trips go out this year. The overall sense of the trip was excellent! The professionalism was outstanding. The care and knowledge shared was fantastic. Each naturalist gave their utmost attention to our students and their learning! – Grade 6 Teacher
