School Field Trips

The Stewardship Program provides outdoor learning experiences for students and teachers focused on the San Joaquin River.  Fresno area field trip sites include:             San Joaquin River Parkway; Cobb Ranch, Lost Lake Park and  Millerton Lake State Recreation Area. Field trips are designed to enhance classroom learning, address California content standards, and promote environmental stewardship.

The Program emphasizes an inquiry-based, experiential approach to learning that integrates curricular areas. Students participate in hands-on activities and field studies that develop critical thinking and problem solving skills and utilize a variety of learning styles. The Program also addresses critical environmental issues facing Californians focusing on California Water Resources.

In addition to an academic program focused on the environment, natural sciences, language arts, social sciences, art and mathematics, we  also offer programs in leadership, team building, fishing, kayaking and canoeing.  Outdoor education empowers students to learn about themselves, the natural environment and their peers while participating in fun and educational activities.Your students will grow by facing challenges, overcoming fears and doing things they never believed they could.



The Stewardship Program has credentialed teachers and experienced natural resource docents on staff to guide learning experiences. Programs can be planned for a single class or an entire grade level. Depending on the activities selected and staff requested field trip costs average $5.00 to $12.50 per student. We will work with you to plan an event that will fit your budget.
