Spring Field Trips

Our educator-guided field trips are free for school groups of 15 or more students in grades pre-K through 12 (ages 4–18).

We are delighted to make field trips accessible to all, keeping with our mission of bringing joy and inspiration to everyone through the beauty of nature, conservation, and learning.

    Benefits of Nature

    Get inspired by nature and help students improve overall well-being by disconnecting from technology and exploring the senses through activities such as journaling and creating a DIY scent sachet. Students will leave with tips and tricks that can be used anywhere to promote good mental health.
