Field Trips

For Grades PreK-12

Come explore the Garden with your group! Field trips at the Garden are appropriate for school, homeschool, scout, and other educational groups. Students spend time engaging in hands-on activities that complement what they are learning at school or other educational setting. Field trip lessons align with PA state and national education standards. 

Field trips are tailored to the needs of your group, so please let us know how we can supplement your lesson plans.  Students will spend approximately 1.5 hours with a Garden educator, and will have additional time to explore the Garden with their chaperones.  Groups must include 10 or more students.

We currently offer two tracks:

Habitat Studies (Grades K-12)
Put your science skills to work collecting data at the Garden!  Habitat studies vary by season, and can focus on forests and trees, insects, pollinators, water, birds and more.  

Early American Settlers (Grades K-2)
Visit our restored homestead, and see how early Americans lived!  Step into a log home, try some chores,  and explore the different elements that make life possible.  

Dates: Wednesday – Friday (please schedule at least three weeks in advance)

Cost: $7 per student; 1 adult chaperone free for every 5 students (additional adults pay regular admission price)
