To Schedule A Field Trip
Teachers can make arrangements for a field trip by filling out
a Request Form. It can be mailed or faxed to our office. After
receiving the form, we will mail, fax, or email you a letter confirming
the date and time for the field trips.
Winter Ecology Field Trip Information
WARM CLOTHING IS REQUIRED
for each student participating in Winter Field Trips!
All students MUST
MITTENS or GLOVES
WINTER BOOTS (no tennis shoes!!)
Due to the added risk
of being outdoors in the wintertime, the above dress is required.
Additionally, warming huts are required on site for every winter
field trip. Field Trip leaders have the option to not allow students
to participate, if they are not appropriately dressed.
Please discuss with students before trip:
1) Stay with your group leaders; don’t wander off.
2) Don’t litter (Bring a plastic bag to pick up litter!).
3) Respect the plants and animals in the forest. This is their
home. Behave the way you would at your friends’ house.
“Take only pictures,
leave only footprints.”
School should provide:
First Aid Kit
Chaperone (parent/teacher) for every 10 students.
Center will provide:
Snowshoe equipment for students and adults.
1) You will meet your presenters at the field trip site (unless
other arrangements are made).
2) If the school decides to cancel a field trip (in case of
severe weather) please call the Center at least 2-3 hrs in advance
at (906) 487-3341!
