School Programs

Gumbo Limbo Nature Center’s education team will now be offering Virtual Field trips for the 2021-2022 school year. These programs will begin on Tuesday, October 5th. There is no fee for these virtual programs. Our virtual field trips will last one hour, and include a pre-recorded video with a live discussion, and a live activity. These virtual education experiences will be offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays with timeslots at 10:00AM-11:00AM and 12:00PM-1:00PM. Each session can accommodate up 3 classes, with the ability to request an additional session if needed. Upon your submission of the request form, an educator will get back to you confirming the date, time, and other details of your virtual program.
