Mission Statement

The Margret and H. A. Rey Center honors 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.

Description

Margret and H.A. Rey, 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. 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 for 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 multigenerational center for learning and exploration.
