Activity Kits

Toolkits are for interactive presentations on environmental topics. They work well for schools, non-profits, scouts, churches and other community groups. Content is designed for youth ages 5-12, but can be adjusted for groups of any age. When a kit is reserved, you will also receive a presentation outline geared toward your group.
