​Spring Field Trips

Book now!  Students become historians, park designers, and ecologists in the field.  Our field trips cover park design, native ecology, and NY history.  Using Common Core skills, students will reference primary source documents, touchable plant material, and artifacts during a walk 30 feet in the air! Put their observational and critical thinking skills to the test as they learn the history behind an abandoned factory, how native plants were used by the Lenape six hundred years ago, and create their own park in the sky.  Trips are aligned to NY state standards for second through eighth grades.  Pre- and post-materials are provided to prepare and extend your students' experience.

Field trips are offered five days a week!  On Mondays and Fridays, please join us at 10 AM or 11:45 AM. On Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, trips are available at 10 AM, 11 AM, and 11:45 AM.  

Spring trips start April 4 through June 24, 2016.   Hurry! Space is limited.

Request a guided field trip today!
