For the Spring 2021 field trip season, we are so excited to be delivering digital field trip programming as well as hosting 8 Family Field Trips onsite.
Family field trips run from 10am-12pm at our site on Topaz Farm and will be held every Wednesday starting April 21st and ending June 9th.
Field trip leaders will lead family units through an exploration of our typical spring field trip modules: Seed to Harvest, Plant Parts, and Pollination. This will involve tending to SIC’s very own Grow Lunch Garden, learning about pollinators, a dynamic farm tour and more.
