Caution: Slippery Conditions
Due to the expected snow & ice, slick sidewalks and parking lots are likely to exist @ all three sites (Seip Earthworks, Hopewell Mound Group & Mound City). Crews will be working to mitigate any slippery surfaces. Please use caution when visiting. More »
Online Field Trip Scheduling
The available dates for 2014 spring field trip season (April through June) have not yet been added. We expect to have the dates available for online scheduling up very soon.
The Field Trips online scheduling page has not yet been fully implemented. We do not expect to fully utilize this online aspect of field-trip scheduling until the 2014-2015 school year. As most visiting schools have yet to utilize this electronic scheduling feature, you may receive a phone call if there is a scheduling conflict. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to develop this new tool.
Planning your Field Trip
Typical field trips are about 2 hours in length. We understand that some classes may not be able to take in all programs offered. Before your visit a Ranger will call you and speak with you about the details of your visit. Please be sure to advise us on the amount of time that your class will be able to spend on-site. Once we confirm the visit length of your field trip with you, the Ranger can then go over which programs would be best-suited for your class's scheduled time at the park.
** Due to staffing issues, we cannot schedule on-site field trips for any Monday during the field trip season.
Please Note: If your class's trip will not fit in the parameters of a time slot that is offered, please reserve both slots for the day that you plan on attending. Also, if the total number of students exceeds the number alloted, you will need to press "submit" twice.
