Field Trips

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have paused all in-person school-based programs. Please see below for information about our virtual field trips.

We invite you and your class to join us for a unique hands-on environmental education experience this season!

Since 1997, the Wylde Center has been dedicated to providing outstanding hands-on environmental education experiences for students. Our environmental education field trips bring students to our five greenspaces to explore the science of the natural world.

Our interactive classes are led by highly trained and enthusiastic environmental educators. As students encounter our gardens, streams, and woodlands, they learn to think critically, creatively, and responsibly about the world around them. All Programs Align with current grade level Georgia Standards of Excellence (referenced for each program).

Virtual Field Trips

The Wylde Center is currently offering pre-recorded field trips with an optional live component. Field trips can be recorded in a Wylde Center greenspace, or from your school garden. Please see our pricing flier for more information, and remember that programs are available at no cost to Title I schools!
