Having trouble finding time to prepare your students for their field trip to the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve? Let our eager and knowledgeable docents come to your rescue.
Our Outreach Program is available to 3rd grade classes before their trip to the Reserve. This program is designed to introduce students to the natural setting of the Reserve and give them background information prior to their visit. Students will learn about the plants and animals on the Reserve, and some of the seasonal changes that occur. They will hear about photosynthesis, plant life cycles, food webs, adaptations, and the geology of the Reserve.
Our docents will come to your school and give a program that is approximately 1 to 1¼ hours in length. Since each presentation is designed to handle a maximum of 52 students at a time, more than one presentation per visit may be necessary. All that is needed is a multipurpose room or similar large area. For the optimum learning experience to occur, the visit by the docents should be scheduled to take place no more than two weeks before your field trip to the Reserve.
This awesome program is free for the asking! Simply complete and then email the attached Program Request Form, and we will schedule our visit to your school.
We sincerely hope you will be able to take advantage of this unique opportunity to prepare your students for their upcoming field trip.
