Wadsworth Masion Field Trip

The Wadsworth Mansion field trip is a spring-time excursion to the former home of Col. Wadsworth and his wife Catherine Hubbard and includes a vernal pool ecology study, a nature hike through the forest and a guided historical tour of the mansion. It is designed for 3rd or 4th graders, but can easily be adapted to other grades as desired.

Indian Hill Field Trip

Indian Hill cemetery in Middletown is a prime location to get a great view of the fall foliage and learn about local geology, as well about past residents of this area including European settlers and the indigenous Wangunk people.  
The top of the hill offers a great picnic spot where older classes (3-6th grade) may have lunch and learn about this place, which was a sacred place to the Wangunk tribe and offers an impressive view of the area.

We offer a variety of field trips to this beautiful park depending on the desired focus (e.g. curriculum tie) and age of the students. Everyone Outside specializes in designing outdoor nature-focused adventures that teachers can link to almost any curriculum. Students can learn about local ecosystems and look at the creatures in the stream, take a hike and visit both the big and little falls, learn about watersheds, etc.
