It is a good website for a few local field trips, mainly Hannaford, Michaels, Petco, and Stop and Shop. Some are tours and some and self-guided but it has lots of print-outs and useful information. http://www.fieldtripfactory.com/

Storm King Art Center

We are incredibly lucky to live next to such a world class museum – along with art, they also have bees/bee keeping and a wide selection of natural flora.  The native trees, grasses and flowers can be used as examples for the “It’s Your Planet – Love It” series of journeys.
