Prices & Presentation Details

Most of our presentations are designed to last about one hour, unless otherwise noted. Because presentations involve group participation with hands-on specimens, we set a maximum of 30 students per presentation, unless otherwise noted. Smaller groups are recommended for some presentations, especially those for younger students. Space needs may be determined by group size. Some presentations can be moved from room to room, whereas others need to be set up in a central location for the day.

Presentation Fees

We realize that many schools and organizations work on a fiscal year starting in either July or October, and your budget may already be set for the remainder of the year. Any presentation booked before Dec 31, 2021, can take advantage of our 2021 rates, even if the presentation is scheduled for delivery in 2022.

Transportation


Transportation cost is $1.00 per mile round trip from Wiscasset, Maine.

Program Length


Most programs are designed to last about one hour, unless otherwise noted.

Group Size


Since these programs involve group participation with hands-on specimens, we set a maximum of 30 students per presentation at schools, unless otherwise noted. Smaller groups are recommended for presentations with preschool students. For libraries and other community organizations with mixed-aged family audiences, we set a 75 person maximum or fewer if your indoor space cannot safely accommodate that many people. 

Customized Programs


If these programs do not meet your needs, we can customize a program that works for you. An additional fee of $100 will apply.

Space


Space needs may be determined by group size. Some programs can be moved from room to room, others (especially the whale skeleton) need to be setup in a central location for the day.

Discounts, Community Funding, and Scholarship Support


Schools, libraries, and parent groups are encouraged to seek funding through businesses and associations, such as a local bank or Rotary, who might be willing to sponsor presentations in their area. On occasion, we are able to provide special pricing for non-profit organizations who would like to bring natural history presentations to their community. Please contact us for details.
