Field Trips: School/Youth Groups
“Everyone was very welcoming. The grounds are so well marked, we could figure things out easily. It is a very special place.” – Portland Arts and Technology High School
The season for field trips is mid April through October 31. School groups must be booked in advance through the Education Department, and receive a special admission rate. To ensure a quality experience for all guests, there is a limit of one school group per day; therefore, we recommend making your reservations early.
