Nature field trips - outside learning during the school day
Everyone Outside helps teachers bring their classes outside and into nature. We offer several off-site field trips and help organize transportation to these locations. Most of our programs are grant-funded and are offered at little to no cost.
These programs are outdoor, curriculum-based, grade level appropriate lessons at interesting historical locations.
The Wadsworth Mansion field trip is a spring-time excursion to the former home of Col. Wadsworth and his wife Catherine Hubbard and includes a vernal pool ecology study, a nature hike through the forest and a guided historical tour of the mansion. It is designed for 3rd or 4th graders, but can easily be adapted to other grades as desired. If you are a teacher interested in planning a field trip, please contact us by clicking here.
