Early childhood field trips take preschoolers on a learning adventure indoors and out! Children learn about the natural world through stories, hands-on activities, games, crafts and songs. Field trips are one hour long and are $4 per student. Adult chaperones are free, except for maple syruping programs which are $2 per adult. Programs marked with an asterisk (*) are available off-site at your location!

Please note: Due to COVID, we are currently limiting group program capacity to 30 students and 4 adults. For larger groups, please request multiple sessions and we will do our best to accommodate your group. Thank you!

All programs scheduled will require 50% of the total paid in advance in order to reserve the date for your program.

This fee includes free admission to exhibits and use of picnic areas. Our calendar fills quickly so call early to reserve your date. Visit our Scheduling and Policies section for more details.

If a topic you are interested in is not covered in our field trip list, we may be able to create a special field trip for you!
