Much of our work happens where the students are— in the school! We are very fortunate for the teachers and staff at Hoonah City Schools for allowing us to share their space and time with them in order to effectively engage with Hoonah’s youth. We truly enjoy supporting students’ passion for environmental fields by providing hands-on, interdisciplinary experiences in order to help prepare them for higher education and careers in science and natural resource fields.
