Students learning on School Field Trip

Field Trips & School Groups

Pemberton Historical Park’s 262 acres of tidal and freshwater wetlands, ponds, upland pines, hardwood forests and meadows make it an ideal location for environmental studies. Park naturalists have developed a program that provides students with a fun, hands-on and safe opportunity to learn about the natural world. Students must be accompanied by their teachers/chaperones, who, in collaboration with a park naturalist, provide instruction and supervision during their trip.

Each two-hour field trip consists of the following activities:

  • Environmental Interpretation: With feedback from the group leader/teacher, our park naturalist will develop a specialized activity that directly connects to the students’ current curriculum and the MSDE Environmental Education Literacy Standards.  
  • Scavenger Hunt: This is experiential learning at its best. Groups will work together to complete nature activities using our specially designed “On the Trail” guidebook. 
  • Trail Hike: Led by a park naturalist, groups will explore the hidden wonders found on the trails while learning about the seasonal plant life and animals that call Pemberton home.  
Field trips are scheduled Monday-Friday based on park naturalists’ availability.
