Through the generosity of members like you, the Pond Education Team converted many of the pond field trip experiences and live lessons into virtual equivalents last year creating the Virtual Pond Education Curriculum for children.

In 2022 we are looking forward to returning to live field trips for both 2nd and 5th grade students for observation, exploration, and hands-on research experiences. The Pond Ed Team constantly updates the curriculum through dialogue with teachers to provide an engaging experience for Brewster school children. Volunteers are also hard at work creating a new puppet show stage for the live presentation of the famous Pond Polly puppet show.
Your $75 donation will help purchase new pond books and ensure curriculum updates for both grade level programs in Brewster school classrooms as well as materials for the hula hoop research stations on field trips.
Your $150 donation will purchase arts and craft supplies for creating new signs, posters, and other educational display materials, and building macroinvertebrates models.
Your $200 donation will help the building of the new live puppet theatre stage and its accessories. The puppets and the puppet theater will be used to produce an updated live pond health puppet show for the students, voiced by BPC volunteers.
Your $400 donation will help fund bus transportation to and from the ponds for a pond field trips - the culmination of the Pond Education Curriculum for Brewster School Children.
Thanks to generous supporters, the 2020 appeal has raised almost $16,000 to date towards our goal of $71,000 in support of the Pond Education and other BPC programs.
