The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens offers developmentally appropriate, nature-based programs aligned to both Connecticut State Science Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. Our forested trails, wetlands, gardens, and greenhouse are extraordinary settings for learning. We also bring our programs directly to schools and afterschool settings. Our programs are hands-on, inquiry-based, and designed to complement and extend students’ classroom learning.
Please click on the link to our school programs brochure below for a sampling of 2016-2017 programs. We are also happy to collaborate with you to design a customized program that meets your students’ needs.
If you are interested in scheduling a school trip to the Bartlett or an offsite program, please contact Emily Curry, director of education.
*Should you wish to bring your students to the Bartlett for a self-guided visit, please contact Emily. There is no charge for self-guided visits, however for safety reasons it is important for us to know when groups are onsite.
