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.
