School Programs & Field Trips
Connect your students to the natural world by learning outdoors. This can take place on public lands, a green space near your school, or in your school yard!
Discover County Lands
Bring learning to life for your students! With more than 2100 acres of undeveloped land that includes old farms, forest, fields, streams, and wetlands, Sullivan County provides opportunities for people to connect to the natural world and each other.
The Natural Resource Department has created two sites for education on the county lands so far, one at Marshall Pond that connects to Unity Mountain Trail and the other at the County Complex called the Eco Ag Center, which includes a community garden, native pollinator garden, research high tunnels, pond and stream, and forest classroom.

The following programs can be conducted as a series of field days in your schoolyard, nearby public lands, or as a field trip to County Lands. Our educators will work with you to tailor the program to meet your curricular goals, schedule and preferred location. Optimum learning group size is 15 student participants. Larger learning group sizes are possible, but teachers must be willing to co-teach or lead a group in exploration. All materials will be provided including a simple guide to facilitating each activity. There are no fees for these programs and partial to full transportation funding is available on a limited basis.
CONNECT & EXTEND LEARNING
Enhance your field trip to Sullivan County lands through pre/post lessons taught or co-taught at your school with the Education and Outreach Specialist. We will work with you to tailor the experience to meet your goals.
