Field Trips &
New for the 2020-2021 school year: We’ll bring the field trip to you!
This fall we are offering the option of an onsite field trip, complete with a lesson designed with your curriculum in mind. We offer science lessons for grades Tk-5th, and California history for 4th (4.1, 4.2, 4.3) and 5th grades (5.1, 5.3, 5.8.) Our Garden staff want to make sure your students don’t miss out on their field trip this year!
Bring your students to Children’s Storybook Garden & Museum for our local history and nature-based science field trip experiences filled with joy, exploration, discovery, and wonder! All our field trips are literature-based, hands-on, age-appropriate, and meet Common Core State Standards or Next Generation Science Standards. Our programs take place mostly outside, and a sampling of topics and explorations include literacy, farm history, gardening, composting, seeds, plants, harvesting, nutrition, tasting and cooking, bugs, pollinators, butterflies, worms, and using our senses.
Field trips may be scheduled with us all year long! We have two sessions available each weekday, at 9:30 AM and 12:00 PM, each lasting approximately 1.5 hours. On Wednesdays, we schedule after-school programs for groups to accommodate local schools' early release schedule.
Gardens, pathways, and activities are accessible to all needs and abilities. All educational content for our field trips is created by a California certified teacher.

Field Trip & After-School Program Guidelines
Field trips and student programs are only available for groups of 6 or more that register in advance. For smaller classes, please contact us for special arrangements and pricing.
Each class is $150.00. This includes admission for up to 30 students, one teacher, and two chaperones. Each additional adult chaperone or student is $5.
We can accommodate up to three same-grade classes at one time (for a total of 90 students).
Teachers, please communicate with parents that non-chaperone adults and children who are not in the class may not attend the field trip or after-school program.
We will do our best to reschedule in the event of rain. However, being outside in the gardens creates a much more enthralling learning experience for the students. Rescheduling is not required, as we are a rain or shine environment!
We will do our best to accommodate any special requests, where possible.
