Field Trips

Give us a Saturday and we'll give you an adventure!

When you come away with us for a day, we'll give you an education and an adventure. Our curatorial staff and our Education Department join forces for our field trip outings, which means expert science is seamlessly combined with fun. You'll not only discover Southern California's features, landscapes, and hidden treasures, you'll learn about what our scientists do when they're out in the field!
