Schools, scouts, and other groups can enhance their visit to Powdermill Nature Reserve with rich, hands-on learning experiences guided by our knowledgeable educators. We welcome the opportunity to create unique programs that complement your school curriculum or scouting adventure, and we are happy to adapt the programs below to the interests of your group.

Step 1. Before You Book Your Field Trip – Gather Information

  • Field trips must be booked at least two weeks in advance.
  • Have a preferred date and back up dates ready when booking.
  • Have the number of participants and adult chaperones attending your field trip.
  • Know if your group has any special requests, like lunchroom reservations, accessibility needs, or curriculum focus.

Step 2. Choose a Field Trip Program

Chaperones and teachers are admitted free for field trips. Costs listed below are applicable for groups of 10 students or more. Smaller groups pay the 10-person minimum. Groups are welcome to schedule unguided visits to the Nature Center at no cost.
