Field Trips

Let us help you plan your next field trip!

A field trip to Bob Jones Nature Center is an exciting opportunity for children to experience nature first hand, learn about wildlife and native plants, be outside and active in a beautiful setting, and learn about conservation efforts and how each and every one of us can contribute to the health and well-being of our ecosystem and planet.

Basics:

Unless otherwise planned for, field trips at BJNC are about 2 hours in length. As long as no pressing time issue exists, they may run slightly shorter or longer depending on weather conditions and the dynamics of the group. We are on the trail and outside for most, if not all, of the trip.

Groups larger than 20 will be divided equally between two field instructors to maximize the trail experience for all children. Groups larger than 40 will be divided equally among three field instructors and so on.

Headcounts must be finalized no later than two weeks prior to the date of your field trip so we can schedule the correct number of instructors for your group.

To schedule your field trip with Bob Jones Nature Center, please call (817) 491-6333 or email admin@bjnc.org.

The adult to child ratio is one BJNC instructor per twenty children, plus the adult chaperones from your facility (a ratio of no less that 1 adult for every 10 children).

During the summer months (June 10th-August 25th), field trips will only be available on Mondays and Saturdays.
