"Thank you so much for being the amazing educator, advocate, and role model that you are. The program we booked, was absolutely amazing, and will be the talk of all who attended for years to come. It is wonderful to come across such an amazing role model. Please keep up the wonderful work that you are doing."

"Emily, I was at your presentation at Rib Mountain [State Park] in Wausau today. WOW. That was SO engaging and educational. You did a PHENOMENAL job. You shared interesting facts and kept kids and adults alike on the edge of our seats during the whole presentation. I am still in awe that we were able to hold the snakes. We go to many science museums, aquariums, and zoos when we travel and see lots of conservation themed presentations. Never have I had such a big impact of a 1 hour presentation in changing how I view the animal. You dramatically changed how I view snakes. By being able to handle the snakes, it took away fear and increased knowledge. This was a wonderful example of how education fuels conservation efforts. Thanks for spreading this knowledge and experience throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota! You are clearly very passionate about your work!!"

"What a unique and valuable experience!. My child learned so much and was so excited to share their knowledge when we got home! One Dad stopped me at preschool drop-off today to tell me how much fun HE had at the party. He was so thrilled to be able to handle our native snakes and especially, Doug, the boa constrictor! I, too, loved every minute. I knew my son would love the lizards and snakes as he’s been passionate about reptiles for 2+ years, but it was truly magical to watch some of the more timid kids go from shying away to handling the snakes all by themselves! I think you did an amazing job keeping these 4-5 year olds engaged and learning about your beautiful animals."
