NumbersWe typically take up to 60 students at a time. For kindergarten and 1st grade we prefer up to 40 students at a time. If more than two classrooms will attend the field trip, we will divide the trip into two different dates or times of day to accommodate all of the classrooms but still keep small group numbers reasonable for a meaningful experience.We need at least one chaperone per 10 students. Please make arrangements with parents or other adults to meet this ratio.
Costs1. Middleton Cross Plains School District (MCPASD) groups: Field trip expenses are covered by the Friends of Pheasant Branch Conservancy. Field trip transportation is paid for by the district. Ask us for details on ordering a bus when dates are finalized. 2. Other groups: Transportation is on your own. We accept donations for the field trip itself.
MCPASD BusingA fund exists to pay for busing to the conservancy. We will give you instructions on how to order a bus once the dates are confirmed with our naturalists. Please do not order a bus through regular channels.
