Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge provides a unique experience for youth of all ages to learn about wildlife in their natural habitat throughout the year. Its close proximity to Coastal Maine makes it an ideal destination for experiential outdoor learning.
Curriculum-based Field Trips
Take your students on a field trip to a National Wildlife Refuge to view and learn about the wildlife and habitat anytime of the year. Each field trip is grade specific and correlated to State of Maine Content Standards.
Teacher-led field trips to the Refuge are typically self-guided. The Refuge requires a ratio of 1 adult to every 10 students. There are outdoor lunch facilities available for use. For availability and scheduling, contact the Park Ranger at email@example.com.
Depending on selected dates, rangers may be available to lead a refuge introduction. Due to the high demand of our free field trip visits and limited space, all educators and group leaders are required to schedule their group's trip in advance with the Park Ranger. Scheduling is available the following time:
Fall, Winter and Spring: Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, September through May
Summer Camps and Groups: Tuesday through Friday from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm, June through August
Note: Set your printer to "flip on short edge" when you print your guides.
