Mission: To connect people to the beauty and wonder of their own unique ecosystems through direct experience and inquiry science.
Kestrel Educational Adventures is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. We offer place-based natural science and ecological literacy support for schools and youth groups. Students learn science through direct experiences in the local natural world, guided by qualified instructors with flexible plans. We believe in building a better and more sustainable world through excellent, student – centered natural science education. Our instructors guide children in developing their abilities to make and share original discoveries and understand complex natural systems. We believe that everyone should develop their own values through experience, and that this is the most powerful route to sustainability and conservation action. We teach children that they should wander, explore, touch, imagine, and live in the natural world. Silliness, muddiness, and storytelling are as much a part of our day as collecting and analyzing data.
