Field trips are geared for Pre-K through 3rd grade students. The cost is $7.00 per student (Teachers and Teacher Aides FREE) and they last approximately 3 hours (10am-1pm). Any parents/siblings that attend are $7 per person. Teachers, please DO NOT collect parent money in advance. We prefer parents to pay upon arrival and then receive their required wristband. Each field trip includes an informative learning session about parts of a plant and the plant growth cycle, with a focus on pumpkins, Christmas trees, and flowers. No matter which season you attend the field trip experience includes the students learning while making a craft (included in the cost), and the students always have something to take home!
