Hilltown Families: We Are Citizen Scientists
“We have wee little ones but it’s never too early to begin introducing them to STEM learning. We have found Hilltown Families to be a great resource for discovering opportunities for our little guys to learn about the amazing world all around them. It sparks their imagination, their curiosity and their respect for learning.” -Kristin, community member and volunteer.
One of the best ways we can support a young child’s development of science-based knowledge is through nature-based creative-free play. When you donate on Valley Gives Day you support connections to community-based citizen scientist opportunities. www.bit.ly/WeAreHilltownFamilies

- STRENGTHENING A SENSE OF PLACE through community based education and engagement
