I have been participating in this program for 8-9 years. It is a great program to expose the students to environmental issues. They enjoy the program and really enjoy the field trip.

I am a kindergarten teacher in Berkeley County and have found the Kids Who Care board to be an amazing group of dedicated volunteers who truly want to inspire the youth of today to be environmentally aware of the impact we have on this earth. They are there from the beginning of the school year with contacts available to volunteers in a wide array of businesses to help teachers with their project ideas. The NatureScope field day they put together is superb, and provides an opportunity for students to experience a full day of science outside the classroom. As a bonus, they award monetary prizes for projects and my class project just provided a $200 prize that will help enhance our environmental science studies. This non-profit organization ROCKS!
