Kestrel Educational Adventures

Grant Awarded: $15,800

Since 2002, Kestrel Educational Adventures has connected more than 10,000 students in the Gloucester, Massachusetts, area with local natural habitats through field trips and classroom presentations.

Kestrel partners directly with schools to tailor science programs that fit the culture and academics of the school as well as local land reservations. The Ideas that Matter grant goes towards creating a new engagement system of materials called LOOKLOOK. Consisting of visual game cards and field guides, LOOKLOOK will make it fun for students to develop ecological literacy and understanding.
