Online Field Trip Scheduling
The Field Trips online scheduling page has not yet been fully implemented. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to develop this new tool.
Rangers in the classroom
If you are interested in having a ranger visit your classroom, please see the Guest Speaker page.
Planning your Field Trip
There are NO open dates for 2018 spring field trips. Please contact us in the fall for 2019 school dates.
If you are interested in scheduling a field trip, please call the park and ask about our options for your students at 740-774-1126 or email our lead ranger. Fall field trips begin scheduling in mid-August. Spring field trips begin scheduling in mid-February. May dates fill up very fast and we do our best to accomodate as many schools as possible. Please remember that all of central Ohio schools are trying to schedule in a narrow window in May. We require at least a 3 week notice to schedule your field trip. May and October fill-up very fast and we have a limited ranger staff.
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 contact you by phone or email 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.
