Field Trips

Bring your school classes, homeschool groups, scout troops, or other groups of any age out to Calusa Nature Center and Planetarium for a field trip!

Choose from a variety of offerings for your field trips! There's something here for every group, from guided nature walks to private planetarium shows. Mix and match our 45-minute programs to give your group a visit that meets your educational goals and interests!

Field trips start at $7 per child and $10 per adult and include up to three programs. Additional programs can be added for $2 per person per program.

  • Guided Nature Walk - Explore our trails with a guided walk tailored to grade-level topics and interests.

  • Planetarium Movie - Experience a full-dome planetarium movie selected for your group's age and interests.

  • Planetarium Q&A Session - Meet one of our planetarium educators for a tour of the night sky as they answer your questions about the stars.
