Camps & Field Trips

Opportunities for K - 12

Our fully-accredited field trips provide opportunities for outdoor, nature-based education for children of all ages, bolstering lifelong learning and promoting physical and mental good health. We also host hundreds of children every summer from the Sarasota County Parks and Recreation Department’s Summer Camp Program.

In a broad, philosophical sense, we strive to do our part to overcome our country’s epidemic of “Nature Deficit Disorder” and the health issues that result, such as obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. We want to help create the next generation of environmentalists.

We are the only organization of our kind in the Sarasota County Green Business Partnership, and were recently awarded Gold Certification by the Florida Society for Ethical Ecotourism, because we practice what we preach!

Grades K - 2
Who’s That Bird? (teacher-guided or docent-guided)

Grades 3 - 5
Beaks and Feet: A Closer Look at Adaptation (docent-guided)
As you observe the birds at Save Our Seabirds, take a close look at their beaks and feet. Discover how much they tell us about what a bird eats and how it gets its food. In our Education Center, take a hands-on approach to trying to “eat like a bird.”

Grades 6 - 8
Bird Scavenger Hunt (teacher-guided or docent-guided)
As you follow the path through Save Our Seabirds, find the birds described on your Scavenger Hunt Search List. Learn how these birds are adapted for survival in the wild, what they eat, where they nest, how they are grouped and classified based on shared characteristics and behaviors, natural threats/predators.

Grades 9 - 12
Let’s Classify the Way Scientists Do (docent-guided)
Look at birds the way scientists and researchers do, by identifying various characteristic features of each species, and then placing them within groups of birds that share certain of those characteristics.
