One Heart Wild board of directors, Drea Bowen, Brenda Newell, Roby Snyder, Brie Youngker and volunteer Donna Van Renselaar were travelled to Sacremento, CA to be certified in the RedRover Reading program. This unique community-based social and emotional learning program is aligned with academic content standards and helps children explore the bond between people and animals through stories and discussion. Teachers and educators trained in the RedRover Readers curriculum read to children and lead discussions – helping children increase their level of empathy for people and animals. One Heart Wild volunteers are available to bring RedRover Reading programs to schools and organizations all around the Peninsula and will include a field trip to One Heart Wild to Make New Friends in person at the Sanctuary. RedRover will also be incorporated in to Equine Experiential Learning programs at One Heart Wild Education Sanctuary.
