50 Days of Discovery

DISCOVER WITH ISLANDWOOD — FROM HOME

Usually, right now our education programs across the region would be in full swing and each day, we’d be seeing students, educators, and community members exploring the natural world and engaging with challenges facing their environment and communities.

 

But even though our in-person programs are currently on pause, we are still committed to bringing this sense of discovery to our community each and every day. After all, the more we discover about the world around us, the better equipped we are to care for it – and for each other.

 

That’s why we were excited to bring you 50 Days of Discovery! Whether it’s a tip, a fact, an activity, or another opportunity to explore, each day will bring something new!

 

Follow along with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn, or dive into each of the discoveries below!
