Nothing to Report
We've added a new page under Educational Outreach!
The Education Corner will hopefully allow everyone to keep up to date on the outreach we're doing in schools and maybe inspire them to offer suggestions (hint hint) on the types of programs/events/activities they would like to see. With the addition of an Education Program Assistant we're hoping to increase our outreach into schools and the community as a whole.
So keep an eye out because the has year just started and we're excited by all the possibilities.
