Program Description

From towering forests to sandy seashores, regional parks are filled with fun, hands-on learning environments. Park interpreters lead field trips outdoors for about 2 hours. Students are engaged in discovery, activities and games related to the topic. Specimens are often brought out to showcase the species that live nearby.

Our programs meet various curricula, from science to physical activity and more. Let us know how we can meet your learning objectives when you book.
