Home School Field Trips

Groups of home school students are welcome to register for field trip programs offered. Advance registration is required and all fees must be paid in advance to confirm your spot. Registration closes 24 hours prior to program day. Morning programs may be followed by lunch or a snack in our orchard picnic area at no additional charge. Please note: we are a carry-in/carry-out facility. Groups using the orchard picnic area must bring a trash bag to remove your trash.
