For a unique and entertaining learning experience...

If you are looking for a new way to engage your students, bring your school group to the GWDC for an immersive learning experience that your students are sure to remember for a long time to come! We have the ability to host school groups both large and small from all over the region and facilitate conservation-oriented field trips.

When you arrive at the GWDC you will receive an introduction and orientation from one of our Interpretive Naturalists. We are a self-guided facility with informative signage throughout the grounds, Interpretive Naturalists are available for questions and compelling educational programs are scheduled during the day. Students also have the opportunity to explore another educational tool “BEARS: Imagination and Reality” an interactive museum exhibit at their leisure.
