Plan A Field Trip


The safety of our staff and visitors is our highest priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fee waivers for field trips are currently being processed for self guided field trips. Ranger programs and orientations are not available at this time. If you are planning a field trip to Sunset Crater Volcano, Walnut Canyon, or Wupatki National Monuments we recommend following these additional safety measures to ensure you have a fun and healthy visit.

  • Follow a 1 to 5 student to chaperone ratio for students in grades K-8
  • Break your group up into smaller groups of less than 10 people when walking on trails to enable social distancing for you and other visitors.
  • Do not gather in large groups around restrooms, trail heads, or visitor centers where it prohibits passage by other visitors.
  • Wear a face covering whenever possible.
  • If purchasing items from the park store please approach the table in groups of 5 people or less and follow social distancing markers when waiting in line.
  • Be prepared and bring plenty of water, food, and appropriate clothing for the season.

We appreciate your cooperation and hope that you have a great visit.
