Field Trips

Our field trips focus on creating a connection between students and their environment through simple observation, fun activities, songs, art, data collection and critical thinking exercises.

Willow Bend typically offers field trips September through October and April through May.  Weather and location dependent, field trips may be available at other times of year - ask us!  Field trips include visits to our center, tours of the recycling center, and programs at a number of outdoor locations around Flagstaff (including downtown Flagstaff, Frances Short Pond, and Picture Canyon).

To ensure the highest quality experience and most effective learning, we only work with one class at a time. We charge $210 for a one hour field trip, $280 for a two hour field trip, and $315 for a four-hour field trip at Picture Canyon. Fee reductions and scholarships may be available for some programs and locations.  Note that all costs are per class per program.
