Walnut Creek Field Trip Explorations: Civic Park

KIDS for the BAY would love to lead your class on a Creek Field Trip to explore and investigate the unique plants and animals that make the beautiful Civic Park environment their home. This Field Trip teaches Next Generation Science Standards in an exciting three-hour outdoor program with an experienced KIDS for the BAY Instructor.

Walnut Creek Field Trip Explorations are only available to Walnut Creek teachers. Field Trip instruction costs are paid for by the City of Walnut Creek Clean Water Program and Field Trips are offered free to Walnut Creek teachers.

“I have discovered a new invertebrate! It has so many legs. Everyone come look!”

Grace, Fourth Grade Student, Eagle Peak Montessori, Walnut Creek

In hands-on investigations, students will:

  • study the pathway of Walnut Creek
  • investigate California native plants
  • identify terrestrial invertebrates
  • play nature games
  • create environmental art
  • complete a trash clean-up project.

“I think the new Field Trips that KftB has designed are phenomenal! They are a perfect combination of science, games, and art and my students have learned a ton about their local habitat. We’ll keep signing up for these, year after year!”

Deborah Walker, Science Teacher, Buena Vista Elementary School, Walnut Creek
