Field Trips & Teaching Resources

Every year, over 9,000 school age children visit Bartram’s Garden to enjoy our fun, interactive programs. You can find opportunities to incorporate your visit into many school-based lesson plans.

Academic Field Trips for schools, camps, and community groups serve students from pre-K to high school.  We offer inquiry-based lessons in nature, art and history and meet Pennsylvania and National Science Foundation academic standards.

This year we’re offering a variety of virtual field trips for schools and groups. View the 2021 virtual field trip catalog here.

We’ve also created a free Teacher Resource Packet, full of creative lesson plans for use in school, home, or group settings. Download the packet here.
