School Field Trips

School Field Trips

Hoyt Arboretum is dedicated to environmental education, and students are central to our mission.

We host hands-on, exploratory field trips for all types of youth groups from 1st through 5th grade. We can accommodate groups of between 20 and 60 students with chaperones. Please reserve at least three weeks in advance in order for us to prepare for your group.

90-minute field trips are led by our trained Arboretum Naturalists and are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Field trips focus on the diverse life cycles and the evolutionary adaptations of trees that allow them to survive in environments all around the world. Our living museum’s global diversity of trees is uniquely poised to offer this learning opportunity in the Portland Metro area.

Field trips cost $5/student. Proceeds from field trips help fund educational programs and maintain the Arboretum’s trees and trails. Scholarships are available for Title I schools for transportation and field trip costs.
