Grade School Field Trips

Children Discovering Nature (CDN) Program Overview

CDN is a two-session science and nature education program for grades K-5 in which students learn about science topics and local habitats through hands-on activities in the classroom and field. Topics covered correlate to Colorado and national science education standards for each grade.

First, a Durango Nature Studies’ educator visits each classroom for an hour-long lesson to introduce science concepts that prepare students for a field trip. The following week, your class visits the Durango Nature Center for a half-day field trip. Instructors guide small groups through a variety of habitats, engaging students with activities, science games, experiments, and guided explorations. These field trips solidify science standards and a sense of place through inquiry based learning in nature.
