School Field Trips


School Field Trips

Class field trip programs are available for students of all ages from toddlers to high school seniors! School field trips may be scheduled on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  We are also willing to work with schools on scheduling trips.

Curricula and lesson plans are designed and customized to meet YOUR needs and help you and your students have a wonderful, meaningful visit. The most common topics include biodiversity, habitats, and flora and fauna of the Pascagoula River Audubon Center and Mississippi Gulf Coast.  

Explore the list of field trip themes below and call to speak with an educator when you have made your choice of field trip topic(s).  Please have a couple of dates in mind for the field trip, as our calendar fills up quickly. We welcome you and your class to our center. 

Contact us at  228.475.0825 or email for questions or to schedule your field trip.
