Although Tuesday is officially the first day of summer, school starts in less than two months.
But the start of fall classes doesn’t have to mean the days of outdoor fun are over. Incorporating Lick Creek Nature Center field trips into your lesson plans can get your students outside and enhance their learning experiences.
The free, instructor-led field trips offer kindergarteners through sixth graders an engaging outdoor learning adventure that builds on classroom topics. Environmental education themes include wildlife biology, water cycle, plants, ecosystem, and organism identification.
The maximum number of students we can accommodate varies based on the field trip. In general, we can take groups of up to 60 people. Depending on the program, field trips last 2-3 hours with an option for students to bring lunch and eat on-site. Each journey starts with a safety overview before dividing into three groups of about 20 students.
The field trips are available September-November and February-May. The hours are from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, and from noon-5 p.m. on Wednesday-Friday.
Trips must be booked in advance, and dates and times are subject to availability. To schedule a field trip, contact Brooke Littlefield at 979-764-3725 or complete the online request form:
We look forward to hitting the trails with you!
