Meet Me At The Mountain

Thursday, December 17 at 5:30 PM

Come join Emerald Eagle and his six animal friends, each with differing abilities, as they go on an inspiring quest for adventure that changes their lives and most certainly will change yours. In pursuit of a common goal, the animal friends must confront a series of challenges while hiking, climbing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and downhill skiing. These activities test their friendship, courage, and teamwork while serving to unite them as they discover new independence along the way.

The first of its kind, Meet Me At The Mountain is a delightful story. Using an interactive multi-sensory approach, the MMATM education project was conceptualized and developed to educate you about how persons with differing abilities often do amazing things to overcome life’s many challenges.

Produced in four different formats, this inspirational story will be enjoyed by everyone!
