Self-Guided School Field Trips
Registration for 2019-2020 Self-Guided Field Trips begins August 7, 2019
To meet demand for youth field trips, the Park offers Self-Guided Field Trips for CCSD, private school, and home school groups in any grade on
Wednesdays and Fridays, October through April. CCSD grades 3-5 are eligible for Guided Field Trips. Learn more.
To participate in the Self-Guided Field Trip program, Wetlands Park requires teachers to take a 3-hour training class, including educational and onsite resources to help plan their field trips. All teachers are required to take the Self-Guided Field Trip Training (1 CCSD CU) in order to schedule and lead their class field trip.
On the day of the field trip, Wetlands Park staff will present a 15-minute Park introduction. Groups have access to the Nature Center Exhibit Hall and Auditorium, and can follow the marked self-guided tour route in the Nature Preserve. The Training Class is currently free.
