Field Trips

The Audubon Center at Riverlands is a great place to bring your classroom, scouts or homeschoolers! The amount of wildlife opportunities the sanctuary offers is sure to excite and engage your students. We offer a variety of hands-on field trips that can easily be modified.

All programs are $3.00 per participant with teachers, group leaders, and chaperones being free. Program will go rain or shine (unless weather is life threatening) and all have an outdoor component. Most programs can be adapted for any age group or grade level, scout groups, homeschool, 4-H, etc. The programs on this list are suggestions. If there is a specific topic you would like to cover we can create a program to meet your needs. 

The Center is open from 8am-4pm seven days a week. Length of programs are highly flexible, but only take into consideration actual program facilitation and not bathroom use, loading and unloading of students. Please take this into account when scheduling your field trip, we want to have as much active time with your students and participants as possible.

**Chances of viewing wildlife are increased in the morning. Unfortunately we can't guarantee that you and your class will see specific wildlife.**
