We are hard at work preparing for the school year and the many field trips that will begin at the end of this month. Teachers are encouraged to schedule field trips to Sunset Hill Farm County Park as soon as possible.

These field trips are available for kindergarten through sixth grade classes, covering a wide range of topics and satisfying a number of academic standards. Some of the topics include studying the ponds and weather at the park, investigating animals, plants and soil, and learning about the history of Sunset Hill Farm.

For more information, or to schedule a field trip, contact Katie Rizer at 219-465-5192 or krizer@porterco.org. Teachers can also expect to receive a guide to our field trip and parks to schools programs in the coming weeks.
