Wetland Round-Up Field Trip Program in Fremont

Newark Slough  Learning Center

Newark Slough Learning Center in Fremont

The Newark Slough Learning Center is located at 2 Marshlands Rd, Fremont, CA.  It is just south of the Dumbarton Bridge Toll Plaza near the Visitor Center and miles of salt marsh, tidal sloughs, mudflat and salt ponds. The Pumphouse, our environmental education "outpost," along with an amphitheater and Environmental Education Pavilion, serve as the hub of an extensive system of bridges, boardwalks and trails that make it easy to see and explore the San Francisco Bay habitats. 

Wetland Round-up Field Trip

Join us for a Wetland Round-up field trip program that investigates creatures of the mudflat, where you can taste pickleweed in the salt marsh, and explore the diverse habitats and wildlife of the refuge. All field trip activities are correlated to appropriate State of California Education Standards. 

Spring 2019 is fully booked. Details about Spring 2020 registration will be announced in November 2019.



Classroom teachers new to the program are required to attend a FIELD TRIP WORKSHOP before participating in a field trip. 

It is strongly recommended that parent leaders and chaperones attend a FIELD TRIP WORKSHOP to learn how to lead the hands – on activities.


Spring 2019 FIELD TRIP WORKSHOP dates for FREMONT will be:

Tuesday, February 26, 4 pm – 7 pm


NOTE: We will contact you by your preferred method when we receive your application.
