The goal of our education series is to encourage a connection to place through explorations of the natural world. We believe that with a strong connection to place an interest in watershed stewardship naturally follows.

Guided walks and natural history presentations are part of the Caplan Family Environmental Education Series at LEA. This series is made possible through the generous support of Hu and Ray Caplan and their family. Dr. and Mrs. Caplan have been members and directors of LEA since the mid-1970’s. Dr. Caplan was the vice president of LEA’s Board of Directors from 1978-1980 and president from 1982-1990. Mrs. Caplan was the secretary from 1992-2006. The Caplans recognize the vital importance of education in all aspects of LEA’s work in protecting the Lake Region’s most important resource and asset: its bodies of water and watersheds.
