The Greenway is thrilled to offer a wide variety of field trips for all elementary grade levels. Field trips are hands-on, interactive and meet curriculum standards for each grade. All grades have the option of taking a field trip to the Greenway or having us bring the Greenway to you through our outreach programs. We hope our field trips can provide a well-rounded supplement to your students’ education.
