Field Trips & School Programs

Forest, meadow, stream, marsh, and pond ecosystems are the tools that we use to engage students in science learning!  Do you want to bring hands-on, inquiry based science learning to your students?  Then find a program that is right for you.  You can choose to bring your students to explore the Honey Hollow Watershed through a field trip experiences, have us bring science to your classroom, or even better, do both!

Field Trip Opportunities

The Bucks County Audubon Society Education Staff is dedicated to providing outstanding educational programs using our 110-acre campus as a living breathing outdoor classroom. Field trips are designed to both introduce basic concepts of ecology to younger students, as well as digging deeper into STEM concepts for older students.  We do this while creating life-long connections with the natural world. Student groups that visit the Honey Hollow Watershed explore our various ecosystems and biomes through experiential, hands-on field activities and cooperative learning games.

Field trip curricula are designed to correspond with the PA Department of Education Academic Standards for Environment and Ecology and can be differentiated according to grade level and classroom goals. Each trip is two hours long and groups are welcome to bring lunch or a snack to enjoy at our picnic tables and lawns.

Here is the listing of our field trip opportunities.

Program Fees:

  • $8/child for a 2 hour program
  • $15/child for two programs

Add a 45 minute pre- or post-lesson in your classroom for just $100 per presentation!

“I want to thank you and Rob for giving our campers such a wonderful experience today.  The kids didn’t stop talking the whole trip home.

Many parents plan to check out the grounds as well after hearing all the great new things they found during their explorations.

You both gave them such wonderful, age appropriate information and were very patient with their questions and stories.

We hope to be back next summer.”
