ANOTHER great SPROUT season!

We want to thank you for making this year’s trips possible, whether you helped facilitate trips or cheered us on behind the scenes. We completed 114 trips, serving 3,718 students!

Numbers aside, it was a season full of…

Teachers & chaperones told us:

“It was our favorite field trip! The setting was so lovely, and we enjoyed… getting to see some of the rest of the arboretum as well.”

“I don't think my daughter would have picked up a worm otherwise”

In response to “Which aspects of the field trip did students continue to talk about or ask questions about back in the classroom or at home?  What most stuck with them?” here’s what teachers and chaperones had to say:

90% said “Eating Plants,” 60% said “Bees and Honey,” 30% said “Soil and Compost,” and 30% said “Worms.”

Thank you to all of educators, volunteers, teachers, supports and of course the students for making this an incredible SPROUT season. To reserve your field trip for 2019, click here!

Happy Hibernating,
