September 6, 2017 – Babcock Elementary

“The most amazing part of the day was hours and hours of happy and excited kids! They pointed with excitement and awe from the river and “skyscrapers” as we drove by on the bus to every animal and science activity they experienced. It was something new and amazing to all of them.” Brenda Hin-Skriel, 2nd grade teacher, Babcock Elementary School.

DREAM was proud to help 50 students experience Fog Willow Farms last May as they rode on a school bus outside their neighborhood–hope we can help more students this year!
