“Interactive Environmental Programs” was born in 2000 as a way to introduce Pennsylvanians to their native flora and fauna. Using live specimens, models, sights and sounds, these engaging programs are presented to thousands of local citizens from area schools, colleges, parks, nature centers, summer camps, and teacher workshops every year. Our goal is to promote a sense of respect and stewardship toward nature right where we live, here in Pennsylvania. Programs and other educational services are provided by sole proprietor, April Claus.
