Minglewood has hired Dr. Kyle Luth as our lead environmental educator! Dr. Luth has a Phd in biology from Wake Forest University and robust experience in education as a high school biology teacher. We first met Kyle a few years ago in our work with the Boys and Girls Garden Club, and Kyle has continued to volunteer with Minglewood for the past two years. Minglewood is delighted to have Dr. Luth on staff to assist with lesson planning and connecting youth to the natural world with lessons tailored to the required curriculum from the North Carolina State Board of Education.
It has been a fantastic year of growth for Minglewood Farm & Nature Preserve. Minglewood's staff reached more children and adults this year than ever before - more than 2,000 students, adults, visitors, and community members in total! The team has stayed very busy on and off the preserve, presenting lessons in the classroom, in school gardens, green spaces, and at home on the preserve. It is a wonderful when kids light up to see our staff arrive for a lesson or when they are getting off the bus at Minglewood! It's been a huge pleasure this year to know our community is excited for our team to bring something different in the world of learning to them. Check out our lessons and testimonial page to hear what people have to say about their visits with our team.
