We can’t wait to host your school group at the Garfield Park Conservatory!
We believe that field trips are an important way for students to make connections between the classroom and the real world, and to deepen their learning across subject areas. We are here to provide an exciting and educational experience for your group, and look forward to helping you plan an engaging and meaningful field trip to our facility.
