In the spirit of Earth Day (April 22) and National Environmental Education Week #EEWeek (April 23 to April 29), Bradford Woods would like to introduce our Spring 2017 Professional Outdoor Instructors.  They have been teaching local 5th graders participating in our residential environmental education programs since late March.  They have been teaching about aquatic life, outdoor living skills, and tree identification, including Black and Sugar Maple trees for our Maple Syrup Camp, among other environmental education and team building activities.  School groups have said that the instructors are very engaging with their students, they are energetic and passionate, and they have boundless energy!  The outdoor instructors come from a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and are from across the United States and around the world.   Without further ado, introducing the Spring 2017 Professional Outdoor Instructors:
