Homeschool Field Trips

Mequon Nature Preserve offers field trips to all schools and organizations at no cost to them. This includes homeschooled students! MNP will offer four days throughout the traditional school year for homeschooled students to come and take a predetermined, guided field trip with MNP staff. Field trips run from 10:00am-1:00pm. Note, MNP does not have a cold storage place for lunches.

Each trip will be capped at 50 students. We ask that all students attending the field trip be over the age of 5. In order to best teach the students, we ask that all younger siblings do not attend the field trip. Families with younger siblings are welcome to stay back at the Education Center while their student(s) are on the field trip. Students will be broken up by grades in order to best serve each learning outcome for each age range.

Here are the dates for the 2023-2024 academic year! For more information, see this Home School Field Trips brochure.

1. MNP Inc. requires the contact person for the school/organization to have on their person information that will allow for quick notification/contact of a parent or guardian should an emergency arise. 2. Each school/organization must follow its district’s policies on parental or guardian permission for field trips in order to attend. 3. I have reviewed the field tip expectations and will contact MNP's staff with any questions or concerns.
