Guided School Field Trips
Registration for 2019-2020 Guided Field Trips begins August 7, 2019
Launched in 2001, the Park's guided school field trip program is the longest-running and most prolific program offered at the Park. Wetlands Park welcomes Clark County School District schools in
Grades 3 through 5 to participate.
Guided field trips are offered on
Tuesdays and Thursdays, October through April. Students will participate in a two hour guided walk through the park led by one of our dedicated volunteer Education Facilitators. On their walk, students will learn about the Nature Preserve and the Las Vegas Wash as well as become familiar with basic concepts of biology and ecology in an engaging and hands-on learning environment.
For fifth grade, the Park offers a special program about food webs and energy flow that is structured to meet Next Generation Science Standards. An in-class presentation by Park staff may be possible prior to your Field Trip. During the field trip, Park Education Facilitators expand upon in-class lessons using flora and fauna found in the Wetlands Park ecosystem.
