Environmental education field trips

ROSCOMMON COUNTY- The Gahagan Nature Preserve offers environmental education field trips to elementary and middle school students. The field trips begin May 1 through the end of the school year. Summer educational field trips can be scheduled for year-round or summer school programs.

Outdoor experiences are tailored to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for grades K-7. A given field trip can cover a variety of subjects and issues, including pond studies, plant and animal defense strategies, migration, hibernation, habitat needs, camouflage, food webs, physical science, watersheds, and other topics. Instruction and subject matter are focused on teacher request or appropriate grade level science objectives.
Field trips offer a guided interaction with nature that is just not possible within school grounds. As classrooms become more technology oriented, the opportunity for students to interact with the outdoors is limited. Field trips allow for hands-on educational experiences for students, engaging their senses while nurturing their social, physical, and emotional well-being.
For more information or to schedule a field trip for your classroom or group, contact info@gahagannature.org. The Gahagan Nature Preserve is located at 209 W Maplehurst, Roscommon, MI 48653.
