To our Brandwein Institute family,

The Brandwein Institute Board of Directors has cancelled all 2020 activities at the Brandwein Nature Learning Preserve due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic and conditions in Orange County, NY. We look forward to welcoming student science campers and resuming weekend activities in 2021. Watch our website and Facebook page for updates. 

Again, to all our Brandwein Institute Community please stay safe, practicing social distancing, and wash your hands.

Thanks for your patience,

Keith Wheeler
President, Brandwein Institute
