Plan Your Trip

  • Call ahead to reserve space for your group.
  • Visit the site ahead of time and meet with a ranger, interpreter or naturalist.
  • Define trip goals and learning expectations and ensure students understand them.
  • Find information about redwoods by visiting SaveTheRedwoods.org/redwoods.
  • Plan fun activities and/or games to engage students and encourage their curiosity and interest.
  • Communicate clearly with students and parents prior to the trip about any safety issues (such as poison oak) as well as appropriate clothing and shoes.
  • Take cameras, magnifiers, pencils, clipboards, “bug boxes,” and other equipment with you on the field trip.
  • Schedule some “down time” during the day, so students and chaperones can personally connect with the redwood forest.
  • Remind students to “Take nothing but memories and leave nothing but footprints!”
  • Consider creating a blog or website where students can share their memories, photos, poems and artwork after the trip.
