Field Trip Themes

The Levy Preserve’s educational programs are formulated to fit in with the national curriculum. They are also designed to help students make connections between classroom content and hands on experiences in the natural world. This multi-disciplinary education program features activities that introduce teachers and students to the topic in a way that optimizes learning. It also provides a foundation in ecological concepts and environmental awareness, which gives students the necessary background knowledge for nature-based activities. This program will also include a follow-up lesson and/or activity that can effectively reinforce their outdoor experience at The Preserve.
