Innovative Education and Science

The Stone Living Lab Education and Community Engagement Program is developing innovative education and science programs that facilitate inclusive hands-on research activities and place-based education. Whether you are an educator, student, researcher, or a community member looking to participate in scientific studies, we invite you to find out more.

Funding for the education program was generously provided by the JAMES M. AND CATHLEEN D. STONE FOUNDATION, THE CABOT CORPORATION, and the national park foundation.
