Field Trips


The City Green Field Trip program provides comprehensive outdoor, nature-based education for students from northern NJ. Field trips take place at our Farm Eco-Center in Clifton or Learning Garden in Paterson, and ensure interaction with the natural world, an understanding of where food comes from, and access to hands-on lessons tied to NGSS standards. 

As students rotate through activity stations, they will get to taste seasonal produce, observe farm animals and native wildlife such as insects, animals, and plants, practice sustainable gardening, and have a lot of fun outdoors!
