For Schools

Welcome to Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center! We are excited to work with you to give your students an unforgettable experience in the natural world.  Our 160-acre property provides the setting for year-round environmental education programs and includes woodland and field trails, a “green” building with geothermal and solar energy systems, restored historic barns, an old-fashioned maple sugaring  operation, heritage gardens, and a forested pond.

We have designed our school programs to supplement your curriculum.  As such, we have aligned our programs with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and/or NH Social Studies Frameworks and can provide more detailed information upon request as to how our programs meet the standards.  We believe that our programs should not be used as a stand-alone field trip, but rather a quality experience that will enhance and reinforce information that you are already working on in your classroom.  Our School Programs Booklet describes some of our most popular programs, but keep in mind that we can also work with you to design a special program that meets your specific needs!

Our programs are led by experienced environmental educators with the goal of fostering an appreciation and understanding of the natural and cultural history of Prescott Farm, and by extension, students’ own special places as well.  We also like to think that by giving a child a sense of place, we are giving them a sense of self.

 

Call us at (603) 366-5695 or use our online Field Trip Request form as soon as possible to schedule your visit as days and time slots are limited.  You are welcome to extend your time here to include your lunch and/or snack time and time in our Natural Playscape.  Also, if you can’t take a field trip, remember that we can come to your school instead—see pages 8-9 of the School Programs Booklet for more information.

Please call us anytime with questions—we hope to see you very soon!
