School Field Trips

The Arboretum is a wonderful learning environment for students of all ages. We offer theme-specific and self-guided tours for students in preschool through high school.

Arboretum field trips are available April 15th – October 31st.

See the PDF below for more information.

Field trips to the Arboretum engage students with unique resources and hands-on experiences! Docent-led programs include a grade-specific theme and optional mini-hike though the Arboretum. Self-guided tours include an 8-page guide.

Fund-A-Bus Program

In 2019, The Arboretum initiated a campaign to raise funds to help get kids out of the classroom and into nature at The Arboretum. We want to make our standards-based, experiential programs available to more local youth! Funds are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, while funds last. Funds should be used in the same calendar year that they are received.

To Apply:

1. In an email directed to, please address the following:

  • Provide your name, your contact info, school’s name, grade you teach, and the number of students you would like to bring on the field trip
  • Provide short description of why you need help paying for transportation and what your actual transportation costs include.

2. Be sure to include “Fund-A-Bus Application” in the subject line of your email
