Mead Botanical Garden has developed a number of quality environmental programs that are designed to meet state standards for grades K-6.* Our programs focus on Florida’s natural environment and provide students with an opportunity to observe, interpret and understand the interrelationships of humans, animals, plants and ecosystems.
We offer programs for public, private and charter schools, homeschool groups, Boy and Girl Scout troops, and other student clubs or associations. If your class or group is learning about something in particular, let us know what that is and we will tailor our program to meet your needs. Programs can be focused on ecological features and/or historical aspects of Mead Garden; edible plants of Mead Garden; native and invasive plants found in the Garden; importance of hydrology in Mead Garden; and much more.
If you would like to schedule a field trip to Mead Garden for your group or class, please fill out the Field Trip Inquiry form below and hit submit. Our coordinator will respond to your inquiry.
Please schedule with at least 2 months in advanced. Field trips are available during weekdays only.
*We also offer programs for older children that are not aligned to specific standards, and for adult and family groups. If you would like to schedule a field trip for a group in grade 7 or above, please indicate that in the Field Trip Inquiry form.
