Kestrel Educational Adventures

We inspire wonder, understanding and connection to the natural world

Our Story

Based in Gloucester, Massachusetts, Kestrel Educational Adventures is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization inspiring a sense of wonder, understanding, and connection to the natural world through playful, outdoor, scientific inquiry. Our unique philosophy centers on the relationship between learner, spontaneous events in nature, and instructors. We serve the communities of Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester, Essex, Beverly and Salem, among others.

Our services include designing and delivering nature connected inquiry science programs for school, homeschool, and other youth groups, and operating the Get Outside center for people of all ages in downtown Gloucester. We also offer professional development and curriculum services to educators. All our programs center on finding a sense of place through direct experiences, constructing understanding of natural systems, and building the skills scientists use to make new discoveries. Programs are staffed by professional naturalists, educators, and curriculum designers.

We inspire wonder, understanding, and connection to the natural world through playful, outdoor, scientific inquiry.
