We are  offering FREE field trips to Bay Area schools, day care centers, youth-based organizations, and homeschoolers. We offer a curriculum with engaging, hands-on activities that promote environmentally conscientious solutions.

Our experts will provide the tools and guidance for your students to discover:

Hair Matters Program

  • Through demonstrations and hands-on experiments, students investigate the science behind our popular program to clean up major oil spills using hair and fur clippings donated from salons and groomers

We can all be Wrap Stars!

  • Students work in groups to design and create eco-friendly packaging solutions, learning along the way about unnecessary waste generated by typical packaging, the negative impact it has on our planet, and what they as consumers and responsible citizens can do.

Urban Farming Fun

  • Students learn about the environmental impacts of different farming methods, then how to use spaces in the city to reduce their own impact by thinking local and developing their own balcony / roof garden.

It’s all About the Sorting!

  • Students will begin to look at waste through a new lens, listening to stories from those who deal with our trash and  learning about the importance of sorting trash into useful stockpiles. These stockpiles will then become fun, functional projects from repurposed materials.

We are also happy to develop a custom field trip with you that suits your specific curricular needs.

Field Trip Hours: 

Monday through Friday 10:30-12:00
