Sunol AgPark Program Information
We offer a complete FREE AgPark field trip package for 4th-6th grade students: an in-school orientation session, transportation and the visit to the Sunol AgPark lead by our Watershed Educators. Students learn about the about sustainable agriculture, food systems and our watersheds.

1 - “In-School” programs prepare your students for the AgPark farm experience. The lesson includes hands-on activities and materials about watersheds and water as a natural resource, the role of farmers, and the connection of the farm to the adjacent riparian area.
The 50-60 min long program is optional but encouraged, and is typically scheduled the Friday before your field trip. If you you are booking for multiple classes, we can arrange back to back sessions in each classroom on the same day.

2 - AgPark Field Trips offer your students the opportunity to experience a working organic farm, engage with farmers and explore the interaction of the farms and the surrounding riparian area. Each field trip begins with an introductory farm tour followed by a lesson connecting students to the land, and to people involved in agriculture and natural resource preservation. Students also participate in farm chores geared to the season and farm needs. Programs typically run from 10am - 1pm, with a lunch break included. We require a minimum of 2 participating adult chaperones per 30 students - in addition to the teachers.

FREE Programs & Buses
All programs, and buses if needed, are underwritten by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. Partial bus grants may be provided by Environmental Volunteers.
Sunol AgPark Location
The Sunol AgPark is located next to the Town of Sunol, just off of I-680 and Highway 84.
- 10 miles south of Pleasanton
- 7 miles east of Fremont
- During the school year, the AgPark is 1 hour from Oakland and 1 hour 20 minutes from San Francisco.
Priority Registration Procedure
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission owns and underwrites the AgPark and makes these free programs possible. Recognizing that, schools in areas that recieve SFPUC water are registered first, in the order submitted. This includes Sunol, Hayward, Fremont, Milpitas, Newark, Union City, San Francisco, and areas of San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties.

The SFPUC also values providing programs to underserved schools, so schools with at least 70% of students in the free and reduced price meal programs are registered next.

We also prioritize our neighbors, so schools in close proximity to the AgPark are sent a link to our request form as soon as the program request window closes for the priority schools. In the past, we have had openings to schedule several neighboring schools during the school year.
