Our outdoor classroom has a seat with a view reserved for students of all ages. We invite young scholars to board one of the Guest Services pontoon boats for a nature-oriented tour of the St. Johns River at Blue Spring State Park.
We will provide junior conservationists with an engaging one hour “curriculum” they will remember as a fun learning opportunity experience. Guest Services pontoon boats are equipped with life jackets, a canopy for shade, a “head” (restroom) and experienced and licensed boat captains and naturalists.
Our Field Trip is designed to bring the Environmental Sciences to students in a way they can understand and see the relationships that exist in our subtropical wetland ecosystem across central and south Florida. We encourage student interaction and can easily highlight current sections of classroom study.
With the sights and sounds of nature all around, we offer the perfect setting to point out and recognize birds, fish, flora and fauna. If we see it, we’ll make sure your class does too.
