Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square has once again been recognized with the Pinnacle Award, a prestigious national educational award, for bringing 1,100 acres of beauty into classrooms near and far, writes Justin Udo for KYW Newsradio

Longwood Gardens received its fifth Pinnacle Award in seven years for its virtual field trip programs that help bring nature to K-12 students globally. 

“That Pinnacle Award is awarded to different cultural institutions based on how your programs are rated by people taking them,” said Longwood Gardens Director of School and Youth Programs Heather Drzal. 

Drzal explained that Longwood Gardens used Zoom to reach classes long before it became widely adopted. This helped to make the shift into virtual learning easier during the pandemic. 

Additionally, virtual trips through the gardens are free for any teacher, anywhere in the world.
