How to Book a Field Trip or Program

Step 1 - Click on field trip and program titles for details and pricing on School Programs page. 

Step 2 - Choose a program.  Select a preferred date and an alternate date.

Field Trip programs can be scheduled at 9:30am, 11:30am or 1:00pm
Programs in your classroom can be arranged at any time that is convenient for your schedule.

Step 3 - Decide whether you would like to add time in to use a picnic area** and/or the gift shop at no additional charge. You may also reserve the use of Grasshopper Grove, the Museum's Nature Play space for an additional $25 per hour, per class.  Please be sure to let the Education Manager know if you will be adding any of these options when booking your program.

** The Wildlife Education Center can only accommodate approximately 20-24 students in its picnic area. You must plan to be transported to the Outdoor Discovery Center if the number of students exceeds 24.

Step 4- Call 845.534.5506 x211 to make your reservation.

We will then send your program invoice and directions to the location of your program (Outdoor Discovery Center-ODC or Wildlife Education Center -WEC). Please make sure your bus driver receives the directions and knows at which location to drop off attendees.

Step 5 – When you receive your invoice, you must sign and return it with your payment.  Payments are due 10 days before your program date.
