Groups of young people need peaceful, quiet, attractive, accessible, nearby areas for recreation and education. Forest areas for these purposes are scarce. A city park, a playground, or even a heavily-used river bank boat landing are not substitutes for a fragrant, shady forest where the primary sounds are the murmuring brook, a singing thrush, and the howl of a coyote. - Joe Lammi, Wake Robin Benefactor
Considering Joe Lammi's comments, we envision the Wake Robin Learning Center providing learning opportunities and experiences in the natural world that supplement educational programs, promoting an understanding of the habitat in which we live.
Provide outdoor, structured, learning opportunities that enrich educational programs and promote an understanding of forests for multiple and sustained benefits.
