Field Trips Programs

Group Fee for Educational Field Trips

$6.00 per person.

We require a 10:1 ratio of students to adults for school groups. These adult chaperones that meet our ratio requirement are FREE of charge and any additional adults attending the program will be charged the program fee of $6.00 each. Programs are 2 hours long. We require a minimum of 10 participants.

The maximum group size that we can accomodate for field trips is 60 students and a minimum of 10 is required for group programs. Title 1 Schools: If a group is unable to pay the fees, we do provide tours at a discounted rate providing your group qualifies for this special opportunity.

Adoptions

The Sandoway Discovery Center animal adoption program is a great way to help care and feed one animal of your choice for one year. When you sponsor an animal your gift goes directly to support the professional care of your adopted animal.
