Educational Field Trips

Educational Field Trips for Youth

Field trips at Tyler Arboretum are offered all year round for grades PreK-5. We welcome schools, homeschools, summer camp groups and other youth groups.

Give your students the gift of nature!
Help your students unplug, breathe fresh air and connect with the outdoors!

Field trips at Tyler Arboretum provide students with more than just a fun day out of the classroom; we create inclusive learning experiences where students make meaningful connections with the natural world. During your field trip, we will explore nature in a safe setting with the expertise and guidance of trained educators who will help you and your students understand various ecosystems, habitats, plants and animals.

Along the way, we will fine tune our science skills by using observation to investigate the world around us. Students will make connections and create their own hypotheses about what they observe outdoors at Tyler and tie it back to what they are studying in the classroom.

Our field trips reach all types of learners and often impact those students who struggle with traditional learning and help them realize that they too can excel in various subjects.
