Teachers, Group Leaders, and Program Coordinators, 

Are you looking for an affordable, stress-free education program that fosters an appreciation for nature? Look no further than White Memorial Conservation Center!  We offer onsite, outreach, and virtual programs. School groups, homeschool organizations, scout troops, libraries, garden clubs, and all other groups with participants ranging from preschoolers to adults are encouraged to peruse our program options below. We can also customize a program to meet your group’s needs. Just call 860-567-0857 or email [email protected] to schedule your nature experience with us. Inquire about financial aid as needed. 

Program Costs:

For a field trip to White Memorial, each 45-minute guided program/experience (for up to 30 people) costs $100. For groups larger than 30 people, we often set up a rotation schedule that includes a visit into the Nature Museum and/or a nature walk. Museum admission is FREE when groups book one or more programs.  

For an outreach program to your facility, a 1-hour program for 50 people or less costs $185 plus a round-trip distance charge based on your location. Replicate programs on the same day are $140. More than 50 people is considered an assembly, which costs $220 plus a round-trip distance charge. Replicate assemblies on the same day are $185.   

For a virtual program, the cost is $150 for the first program and $100 for any additional programs booked at the same time. 

We also have a number of pre-recorded programs, which gives your group the flexibility to watch at any time. For $100, we’ll send you a private link to a video on YouTube. Please inquire about which programs are available in this format. 

For program cancellations and refunds, please review our Cancellation/Refund Policy.  

Other Educational Opportunities:

Self-guided hikes on White Memorial’s property are absolutely FREE. With over 40 miles of trails, you’re bound to find one that works for your group. Print this  Outdoor Scavenger Hunt  for an extra challenge on your hike. Organized groups should contact our Office Manager regarding the paperwork required to use our property.

Self-guided visits to the Nature Museum (independent of a booked program) are $3/person for a group of 10 or more people. While it is not required, we encourage you let us know when you’ll be visiting. Feel free to use this Scavenger Hunt inside the Museum. There is also a lovely Gift Shop  in the Museum building that is open to the public.
