The Nueva School gets it!
Lee Holtzman, upper school history of science teacher and alum of The Nueva School shared the following about her experiences with our animal ambassadors:
“We all interact so little with nature these days, and these moments of contact with the wild both centers us and shows us why we need to preserve nature. Students held baby alligators with a sense of sanctity, and watched with wonder as the red-tailed hawk spread her wings. The moment of touching an immense Burmese python or locking eyes with a fox engendered a real desire to protect and care for nature in the students,”
