School Field Trips

Are you looking for a fun and an interactive way for your kids to learn about an environmental topic? Bring your class or group to Willow River State Park for a field trip where our staff of educators and Naturalists can plan a variety of activities for your class or group on a wide range of topics. You may wish to bring your class here on your own. If you would like to reserve our classroom or make sure the Nature Center is open, please call or e-mail us to reserve these spots. You can also borrow our materials as well. 

Please see our field trip list below. This list is not inclusive. We are willing to plan other lessons/topics.
