Field Trips

If you’ve enjoyed The Caterpillar’s visits to your school over the years or are interested in giving your students an interactive experience in nature, we invite you to bring your class on a field trip to Pacifica: A Garden in the Siskiyous, the home of the Caterpillar! Pacifica Garden spans over 500 acres of the bio-diverse Klamath-Siskiyou region of Southwestern Oregon and is dedicated to providing education about our environment. It is an ideal location for students to get a first-hand look at the natural world while learning the fun curriculum that the Caterpillar is known for!

We will work with your school to schedule a day for your visit. Up to four classes can participate in one day. Groups of students will rotate among hands-on learning stations and most programs will include a short hike through Pacifica’s gorgeous landscape. Our facilitator will work with you to select activities that are both fun and educational for your custom field trip. Possible themes include Nature: Plants & Habitats, Nature: Animals & Habitats, and Geology: Rocks & Soil.

If you are interested in scheduling a field trip, please contact us at caterpillar@pacificagarden.org or call us at 541-846-1100. Dates are limited so contact us soon! Pacifica Garden is located about 30 minutes from Grants Pass and 40 minutes from Medford; you can find detailed directions here. Please let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you here soon!

My hope is that when kids experience nature and science this connection will result in their care for our environment. ~
