Field Trips + in-class visits
We offer Field Trips for Preschool - 12th Grade. Our field trips cost $15 per student (chaperones are free) and last 3 hours. We also have "In-Class" Field trips where EMA will come right to your class! We customize our programs, classes, and field trips to your group's specific needs so that your student can get the most out of the experience. We want this to be an experience that really ignites a passion in your students and effects the way they interact with the environment and the world around them. We hope to inspire them to preserve, protect, and enjoy our natural world!
Due to damage from Hurricane Florence, field trips to EMA will be postponed and unavailable until March 2019.
