Field trips for grades 1-3 consist of a two-hour lesson exploring the Schuylkill Center's natural areas with our environmental educators.

Forest Free Play

A unique chance for students to explore our pine grove forest, build nature forts, climb trees, and much more. This program offers students the opportunity to let their imagination guide them during unstructured time in the forest.

Pond Community (April – November)

Dip-nets and buckets in hand, students will explore the diversity of life in and around our ponds.

Habitat Hike

Explore the field, forest, and pond habitats to discover who calls the Schuylkill Center home and how they find their food, water, shelter, and territory.

Incredible Insects (April – November)

Get up close and personal with one of the most diverse groups of creatures on the planet! Students explore fields, ponds, and forests to study insect features and behaviors.

Art & Nature

Investigate and interpret the natural world through art. Students will explore outdoors and create artworks using natural materials collected during their explorations.
