“There’s the Nature Box Ladies!” is a commonly heard phrase shouted out by eager children in our area when they see a well-known group of educators arrive at their school. Students often remember the presenters of Nature Boxes years after they visit and will stop them at the local grocery store, or other areas about town, to remind them what a great time they had. Recently a kindergarten teacher noted that, “The children are always engaged and discuss the information they have learned. It is a great way for them to make a connection.” Inspired by their first encounter with the program in 2007, a group of Cibolo Creek Elementary students raised funds to purchase the materials for what would become the Cibolo Prairie box. This is now one of many Nature Boxes making their way around area schools. As a free program offered to local preschool through 5th Grade students, the program depends heavily on donations such as these.
