Field Trip Logistics
Teachers wishing to have their students participate in the wildlife field trip must have their classes divided into groups of no more than 20 students. For example, a bus of 40 students would be divided into 2 groups of 20 students each.
Preparing for Your Trip
Students that spend time preparing for their visit get more out of a field trip to the park. Activities post-visit also help to reinforce information learned during the trip.
