MILLBROOK MARSH NATURE CENTER

2007 END-OF-SEASON PROGRAM SUMMARY
2007 Seasonal Operation Dates: 01 Feb through 05 Nov

ole.gif• During 2007, the nature center hosted 8,622 program visits, a 24% increase from 2006, which demonstrates the continued popularity of programs despite the seasonal facilities. This count includes 3,387 children visiting from scout groups, charter schools, and five different school districts.

• For 2007, a Seasonal Program Coordinator was hired for 9-months to teach additional programs and be on-site to oversee programs / staff during activities. This new position was instrumental in the increased attendance and revenue from 2007. Part-time seasonal staff (5 in Spring, 4 in Fall) plus a Summer Intern were engaged to provide staff-guided group programs and family programs during the year.
