1st Grade Field Trip Options

There are several off-site field trip options available for 1st grade classes. Some require bus transportation, but at least one option is ‘walkable’ from your school.

Nature in your neighborhood Trip

This field trip consists of an exploration of a local park or green space that is walking distance from the school. During this field trip students will walk from the school to a local park or natural area exploring the nature that they find all around them along the way. Each group will be guided by an experienced field trip leader, introduced to fun nature based activities and will discover opportunities to exercise their wonder and curiosity.

Total time for each class: 90-minutes

Availability: Year Round (weather permitting)



General Ecology Field Trip

Our General Ecology Field Trips take place at one of 4 local Bay Area Open Space Preserves. Trained EV docents guide students in small groups to explore plant communities, look for evidence of animals passing by, and discover the stories told through the local geology.
