Earth Day on Hurricane Island for Maine Teachers

Celebrate Earth Day this year with a free trip to Hurricane Island! We have 22 spots for teachers available on our boat for a day trip to explore and learn more about the programs we offer through the Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership. If you are a Maine teacher and would like to learn more about our professional development programs (through our Learning Retreat for School Leaders), for school groups, and for students during the summer (Maine ISLE and Maine SEAL programs), we want you to come visit for the day! This opportunity is available on a first come, first serve basis, so please email alice@hurricaneisland.net to reserve your spot, and we will send along additional information about the day.
