Students, Teachers Connect To Local Lakes Through Destination Field Trips
At the start of the 2019-20 school year, Sarah Baier, educational program specialist at the Lilly Center for Lakes & Streams, set a high bar for the Lilly Center’s destination field trip program: Host 1,000 K-12 students by the end of the school year.
With close to three months left in the year, that goal will quickly be exceeded, according to a news release from the Lilly Center. All told, the center plans to host 62 individual classrooms and almost 1,500 kindergarten to 12th-grade students.
Destination field trips are designed for kindergarten through third-grade classrooms. Several programs for other grade levels are also in process, including customizable lessons for high school students. Although all slots for 2019-20 are full, email Sarah Baier at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about options for the 2020-21 school year.
