Education is extremely important to the MDWFP Museum of Natural Science. The MDWFP Museum of Natural Science’s educational opportunities include a field trip program, special classes, and camps. One of the most general and popular educational programs is the field trip opportunity.
Through the field trip opportunity, schools are welcome to travel to the MDWFP Museum of Natural Science to use and explore their facilities to gain a new insight into natural science. Schools can choose from any of the following field trip options to participate in:
· Self-guided Tour and Trails gives participants the opportunity to explore the indoor exhibits of the MDWFP Museum of Natural Science for one hour, then explore the natural trails for approximately 1.5 hours. Unlike the other tour options, participants in this tour will not be guided by a Museum official.
· Hands-on Program allows visitors to explore the indoor and outdoor portions of the MDWFP Museum of Natural Science, as well as participate in a hands-on activity with a museum official. During the 30 to 45 minute hands-on program, a museum official will lead an interactive and educational class about any of the following topics: fossils, birds, fish, endangered species, plants, reptiles, invertebrates, or mammals.
· Wetlands Program is a one hour field trip opportunity offered for students in third grade and above. Through the Wetlands Program, students will work alongside renowned educators and employees from the LeFleur’s Bluff State Park to learn about, understand, and explore the fundamentals of plants, soil, and water.
