School Field Trips and Presentations


Field trips give students educational experiences away from the regular school environment and provide alternative educational opportunities.  Children have an opportunity to learn in an interactive manner by: sight, sound, and touch.

Learning outside the classroom can inspire a child to try new things, introduce children to different job opportunities, and spark new interests.

We look forward to inspiring an appreciation and enjoyment of nature, through education and conservation, encouraging the children to live in a healthy environment and an improved quality of life.
