Field trips are free to all groups in our service area on a first come first serve basis and subject to availability. Registration is now open - click the button below to sign up!
Schools who bring 25-70 students are eligible to receive their transportation costs reimbursed. Larger group programs may be possible upon special request. You can bring your whole grade: if you have more than 70 students, we will make arrangements for two field trip days.
Trips are primarily offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between October-May. Check the calendar below for the most up-to-date availability.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual field trips are currently available.
Respond with more details about your group to help us ensure the trip is accessible to all and supports your learning goals.
Make lunch plans: You are welcome to eat in our park after your trip. Shaded picnic tables and a grassy area for playing are available. Feel free to bring balls and games.
Arrange transportation: Teachers reserve their own bus and apply for reimbursement from the Waterwise Community Center after the trip.
Sign up chaperones: Chaperones and teacher assistance is critical to a successful trip. Up to six chaperones may attend and at least two chaperones per class are REQUIRED.
Watch the weather: Trips can be rescheduled if the forecast 24 hours prior to your trip predicts a 40% or higher chance of rain. However, we love to teach in the rain and encourage you to keep your field trip on a rainy day to see the water cycle in action.
