Fairview Farm is a 170-acre wildlife preserve, and the perfect outdoor classroom! With over five miles of trails, a pond, meadows, forest, and a bird and butterfly garden, there is plenty to observe, discover and experience. This outdoor setting can host upwards of 150 students at once, with ample bus parking, picnicking areas and restroom facilities.  

Our historic barn complex includes a rustic nature classroom and indoor-outdoor interpretive workshop. The ADA accessible Betty Merck Science and Education Center on campus contains a children’s exploration room and a large community meeting room.

Our Field trip programs are perfect for an entire grade level, a single class, a homeschool group.

Our Classic Field Trip Program

Your students rotate to several program stations throughout the day. Depending on the number of stations you choose and the duration of your field trip, each activity lasts in duration from 20 to 45 minutes. Typically a program from 10 am until 1 pm works well, and can include a 20-30 minute picnic lunch break (we do not provide lunch).  An energetic day of educational fun!
