Ms. Lisa Garcia from Lakeville Nature Conservancy in Lakeville, MA sent SWST this message: “I just wanted to send SWST some positive feedback – I was teaching an environmental science lesson to some elementary students this weekend, and when they were doing a webquest they ended up on your educational materials webpage (this page here http://swst.org/edu/list_of_educ_materials.html) They thought I should tell you we were using the links there and found some great information so thanks 🙂 The student also suggested this article as a source of more great information and links to more.
