To honor the Reys' spirit of CURIOSITY and DISCOVERY by increasing UNDERSTANDING of & PARTICIPATION in ART, SCIENCE & NATURE through programs for youth, adults & families.
Margrel and H.A. Rev, authors of the Curious George children's book series and former summer residents of Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, were artists and adventurers, historians and naturalists, gardeners and stewards. Today their pursuits live on in the Margret and H.A. Rev Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to honoring the Reys' spirit of curiosity and discovery by increasing understanding of and participation in art, science, and nature through programs for youth, adults and families.
The lives of Margret and H.A. Rey were filled with continued learning and community service. The Reys were active in writing and illustration; astronomy; natural history; photography; environmental action (including calls for renewable energy); concern for animals; the simple joys of gardening, walking and bicycle-riding; and, of course, children's experiential learning. These life pursuits of the Reys form the basis Rey Center programs. This mixture of art and science, the physical and intellectual, young and old, and ever-present curiosity, is the foundation for a multi gene rational center for learning and exploration.
