Eco-educational field trips

Hands-on activities

Looking for eco-education and inspiration for your students? Our new eco-industrial hub in San Francisco is open and we invite all students from Bay Area schools, day care centers, youth-based organizations, and home schools to join us for a field trip of eco-exploration.

Our Matter of Trust experts have developed a curriculum with engaging, hands-on activities that promote environmentally conscientious solutions. You can book our regular tour (which lasts about an hour), or we are happy to customize your field trip to suit your specific needs.
