Free Stivers Lagoon Field Trip
Submitted By City of Fremont
Interested in ensuring the next generation of Bay Area residents will care enough to protect San Francisco Bay? If so, Fremont teachers can register their class for a free 2-hour field trip through Stivers Lagoon - a unique urban marsh located in Central Park. Students will learn about wetlands, watersheds, ecology, and the effects of water pollution on the environment, habitat, and biodiversity. Hands-on activities include creek surveys, water quality sampling, aquatic insect inventories, collecting and creating plant guides, and much more.
Student activities meet the 3rd Grade Standards for physical science, life science, investigation, and experimentation. The tours are open to Fremont public, private, and home schools only. Class size is limited to 28 students, and must include one teacher or parent per five students.
