From Our Library: A Booklist for Studying Seed Dispersal

Hilltown Families on Mass Appeal: Seeds as a Catalyst for Learning

Hilltown Families on Mass Appeal:
Seeds as a Catalyst for Learning

Hilltown Families and Mass Appeal (a weekday, hour-long lifestyle program on NBC) have teamed up to offer a live monthly segment on WWLP 22News!  Each month, community-based education specialist and Hilltown Families’ Founder, Sienna Wildfield, joins Mass Appeal hosts to talk about ways to engage in your community while supporting the interests and education of your children (and yourselves!).

This monthly segment continued on Monday, October 29th with Sienna and Danny talking about how to use seeds and pods as a catalyst for inspiring children to learn about our local ecology.

Sienna has contagious admiration for seeds. She just loves them so much.
And she’s going to help you and your children, therefore, love them too!
– Mass Appeal Host, Danny New
