You are welcome to lead your own field trip at Cabrillo National Monument. No reservations are required, but you may wish to apply for a fee waiver. If you would like to visit the tidepools, you will also need to apply for a tidepool permit.
For topic information, or for ideas to help you construct your field trip, review the Teacher Packets for Ranger-led activities, and the Suggested Reading list. For a fun activity for your students at the park, feel free to download the Scavenger Hunt. And don't forget to check out our film programs!
