When visiting the Grand Lake Stream area, if busy schedules don’t align with our public program dates, we now have another educational option. DLLT is pleased to be offering “Private Education Programs” in the Grand Lake Stream area for a donation to DLLT. Please email email@example.com if you would like to schedule a program.
Downeast Lakes Land Trust offers programs for K-12 school groups designed to provide authentic hands-on learning experiences in the forests and waters of the Downeast Lakes region.
DLLT school programs are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards so that they can easily be integrated into school schedules. Some of these programs are based on the awarding-winning Project Learning Tree and Project Wild curricula.
DLLT is willing and eager to design and develop programs that meet the specific needs and goals of schools and individual teachers.
