Field Trips & School Programs

Cary Institute educators would like to engage your K-12 students in the world of ecology!  Participate in one of our field ecology programs located at our 2,000 acre ecological research site or have one of our educators bring our programs to your classroom or schoolyard.  

All of our programs promote outdoor, scientifically valid, educational experiences for K-12 students, scout troops and other groups. Each program was developed to support New York State Learning Standards and can be tailored to suit your specific needs.  Pre- and post-visit lessons for each program are available. 

All of the Cary Institute Education Programs are part of our Ecological Literacy Program.  We are currently conducting educational research in student learning.  All programs may be subject to pre and post assessments that will be used in our research efforts.

Field Trips

Guided walks on our trails and mini-investigations use the natural curiosity of schoolchildren to teach basic ecosystem concepts.

Schoolyard Programs

The local schoolyard environment is used as a classroom with investigations into organisms close to home.
