Student Field Trips

Whether you bring your class to the Garden for an experience you lead or for a workshop taught by our staff, or join us virtually from your classroom, your students are sure to have a wonderful time investigating a rich variety of plants and nature. All workshops are phenomenon-based and correlated with the Next Generation Science Standards.

Scholarship funding to cover the workshop cost is available on a first come, first served basis for qualifying schools. Visit the Chicago Botanic Garden scholarship application to learn more and apply.
