Field Trips – Educational Outreach

The Earth & Spirit Center’s Environmental Educational Outreach Programs are designed to promote within children a curiosity and care for the Earth through direct learning experiences that help them explore the spiritual connection between themselves, nature, and science. On our 27 acre campus of fields, woods, and gardens, and in our historic, renovated brick barn, children will be encouraged to creatively engage the natural world and cultivate a sense of stewardship for our planet.  Field trips can be custom-designed for school groups, youth groups, groups of families, and other organizations.  Email us for more information and to schedule a field trip.
