Who runs the Science in a Tree program?

If you've ever wondered what would happen when you mix a master tree climber and a science teacher together, you have finally found your answer. Welcome to Science in a Tree! We are two friends from St. Louis who formed a nonprofit mission for kids dedicated to outdoor adventure learning & experiential science education. Our goal is to reach as many students as possible with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to climb a tree and explore nature from high above.
