Currently the Garden’s field trip program is on hiatus. The Garden is committed to offering quality education programs for schools and teachers, please stay tuned for new ways to bring the Garden into your classroom. Self-Guided field trips for educational groups are still available on a limited basis.
NATURE FIELD TRIPS & ACTIVITIES
Our programs engage kindergarten through eighth grade students and teachers with the Garden’s resources in our nature-based field trips. Explore the outdoors with a hands-on, inquiry-based learning experience—and a dose of fun—to enjoy the Sonoran Desert and care about it.
