Tami Shimp, VP of Development of Community Relations for Berks Nature, talks with Lynne T Burkholder, Director of the Wider School. The Wider School provides curriculum for home schooled children in science, language arts and history. In addition they offer project assignments, field trips, time management and organizational schools.

Lynne says they needed a wildlife-focused field trip and Berks Nature individualized a program to her fit her needs. Lynne says the kid’s favorite parts of the trip included the boardwalk, the Riparian Zone and Owl pellets. They actually found them and discrete the pellets to discover the most recent meal the owl enjoyed. Tune in to hear more of the experience her kids enjoyed after going on a field trip with Berks Nature at Angelic Park.

Tami says there is a full agenda of programs in 2016. In addition to the current programs new programs are being added including a variety of 'birding' programs. The natural wetlands at Angelica Park serve as the perfect backdrop to explore nature with Berks Nature.  It will be the home of the new Berks Nature Center.
