At the conclusion of each day, students will receive a certificate from the NRWA that demonstrates their accomplishments.

Science Saturdays will be led by Mary Marro, NRWA's Environmental Education Director.? Marro is an environmental biology scientist with hundreds of hours of experience working with youth of all ages.
