Due to COVID-19, we will be limiting Fall Field Trips to virtual only and Spring Fall Trips will hopefully be in-person, with additional guidelines.

If you have any questions, please email Lauren Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also willing to work with the unique needs of your school and your students during these times, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

Field Trip Descriptions
During field trips, your students will experience:
- Hands-on activities
- Guided hike, themed to the activities selected in the field trip
- Tour of center
- Live science presentation
Field trips can be made for the following group sizes:
- 10-60 students
- 61-120 students
Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate groups of less than 5 students. Groups with 5-10 students will be charged for 10 students.
Parents & Chaperones:
New for the 2018-2019 school year, we are allowing 1 FREE chaperone for every 10 students on the field trip. This is because this parent is asked by Oxbow and the school to help out with students during the program. This includes following rules and assisting with activities. All other parents are now asked to pay $5, regardless of the program they are attending.
There is no fee for teachers and bus drivers for the field trip.
All programs take place rain or shine.
You may reschedule your field trip (if space is available). Field trips must be cancelled 2 weeks in advance.
Field trips that need to be rescheduled at the last minute due to hazardous weather or school closings.
After the field trip, your group may stay for a picnic lunch on our grounds. We have a total of six picnic tables and outside space as well for your use.
We do not provide lunch or have food available for purchase. If you have questions about having food delivered, please call our main line at 706-507-8550.
