Field Trip Opportunities for Schools
Field trip opportunities for schools and youth organizations are offered from April through September. The nature center's "Life at the Edge" field trip program is geared toward pre-school ages through 5th grade. It focuses on horseshoe crabs, shorebirds and the Delaware estuary with an option for a beach exploration component that takes place at nearby Slaughter Beach. Other programs/topics may be conducted upon request.
Structured tours of the DuPont Nature Center also are offered from April through September. Visitors will learn about horseshoe crabs, shorebirds and the Delaware Bayshore region as they are guided through the center's exhibits.
To schedule a field trip or tour, contact Lynne Pusey at firstname.lastname@example.org or 302-422-1329.
