Excellent program! Educational and entertaining. Top notch!

Absolutely fascinating and so eye-opening. I've never experienced any wildfires, and being able to experience it in this way, right here, is amazing.

The interactive activities were awesome! We loved the story and how the activities made information more accessible and embodied.
