Teacher Day on Hurricane Island

Participants from the 2014 Teacher Day enjoy the view from the high cliffs

We are offering a FREE trip to explore and learn more about the programs we offer through the Hurricane Island Center for Science and Leadership. If you are a science teacher or would like to learn more about our professional development programs, middle and high school programs for school groups, and summer programs, we want you to come visit for the day!

This opportunity is available on a first come, first serve basis. Please email to reserve your spot and we will send along additional information about the day.
