"If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it."

David Sobel

Support Merrohawke

Merrohawke Nature School is a 501(c)3 nonprofit educational organization that serves upwards of 1,600 kids annually, year-round, ashore and afloat. All tax deductible contributions help us to reach more kids with nature connection programs. While program fees are our largest source of revenue, program fees do not cover the full cost of programming. We rely on philanthropy to sustain our organization and enable us to continue providing the high quality education programs that best serve our Lower Merrimack Valley community.
