Comments from parents of past Woodchucks

“It’s so nice to have a program that celebrates wonderful things to do in nature and lets the kids do some outdoor play and exploration. It is really lacking in our world, but I value that you provide a safe, friendly and fun place to learn and enjoy!”  Wendy P., Stamford, Vt.

“My daughter had a great time at Woodchuck Wednesdays; such a great time, in fact, that she would start asking if it was time to go to Woodchuck Wednesday around Saturday morning.  She enjoyed the chance to be outside and to spend time playing and doing interesting things with other children, and to play with the “big kids” from Williams College.  I, however, valued more the opportunity for her to learn about the environment, gain some familiarity with local plants and wildlife, and further develop an appreciation for nature and why it should be preserved and protected.” Erryn L., Williamstown, MA
