Students learning on School Field Trip

Field Trips & School Groups

Environmental Field Trips

Pemberton Historical Park's 262 acres of tidal and fresh water 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.

Each field trip consists of the following activities:

Animal Show

  • Get up close and personal with the animals that reside in Pemberton Park, including snakes, turtles, fish and more.

Scavenger Hunt

  • 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. If the time is right, you may even get to view flying squirrels in the wild.

Field trips are scheduled Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-noon or 1-3 p.m., based on park naturalists' availability.
