Field Trips, Programs, Scout Troop Badges, we do it all!

We offer a wide variety of programs for public and private elementary schools in the region as well as daycare and after school groups.  Thousands of school children participate in Dinosaur Hill field trips each year.  Whether your class visits the preserve to dip for insects in the creek, use instruments to test the soil or you have us bring our portable planetarium to wow your students you are sure to have a great experience.  Dinosaur Hill programs are hands-on and will get your students enthused about science and build on the lessons they are learning in the classroom.  All programs are specifically designed to meet the Michigan curriculum standards and benchmarks. Click here for a list of field trip/program offerings.
