Environmental Education at Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge
We're excited that you want to use the refuge to enhance your classroom learning experience. We have an active environmental education program which you can adjust to fit the needs of students from elementary through college. We'll be happy to work with you in making plans for your time at Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge.
Your trip should bring big grins, dirty hands, happy memories and a new and better understanding of Piedmont National Wildlife Refuge and its inhabitants.
At Piedmont, you can have the opportunity to work with your students on a variety of activities. We will assist you with planning a day of fun and learning.
Schools and other groups must make a reservation for a field trip, generally at least two weeks in advance, although sometimes dates are scheduled several months in advance. To make a reservation, call (478)986-5441 or email the Refuge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visits may range from a few hours to an entire school day. Staff assistance is available to help with planning. Groups are expected to abide by the refuge's rules and regulations, and we recommend having at least one adult to every 5 students. Students should always be accompanied by an adult.
When you contact us, we will send you additional information which we're sure you will find helpful.
