Adaptation: Not Just for Non-Human Animals

Although there was no “normal” this year, one thing remained clear and true: Lincoln School loves Narragansett Bay.

And while we keep our fingers crossed that we will be able to love it in person next year, we are happy that this year, we could still love it over Zoom.
