Field Trips: The Bluffs as an Outdoor Classroom

This section of our website, a work in progress directed toward teachers and parents interested in the potential of the Carpinteria Bluffs as a natural, outdoor classroom, is available for both formal and informal school field trips.

For further information, please contact us through the home page of this website (carpinteriabluffs.org).

Here’s what several local Carpinteria Schools did at the Carpinteria Bluffs for Earth Day 2006 with a formal field trip sponsored by Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs and coordinated by Katie Roberts.

What to bring on your field trip:

– Water
– Sun protection (sunscreen & hat)
– A sketch pad (pencils, pens, watercolors, etc.)
– Binoculars
– A magnifying glass
– A compass (to learn about mapping)
– A sweatshirt or jacket
– A bag lunch
– Your imagination & a sense of wonder

Plan to stay all day.
