Our field trips last about two hours, but can be tailored to your schedule! You are more than welcome to bring a bag lunch and beverage and enjoy lunch looking at the Indian River.  Our ideal number of students per field trip is no more than 30. We do require at least two weeks notice of your planned visit. 

 

Materials are available ahead of time to help prepare the students, as well as activities that can be done in the classroom before arrival or after the experience, as a way to recap the field trip.  These activities include a word search, scavenger hunt, and bingo game.

 

Please contact us at fieldmanor@gmail.com for more information and to make reservations.

 

Allergens include: bees, mangoes, citrus, fire ants
