K-12 RESOURCES

Fair Hill

We offer year round nature and history field trips, as well as service trips. Nature trips feature hands-on activities that highlight our arboretum and produce gardens. History trips can focus on abolition, women’s rights, and/or Quaker history. We work with each group to come up with a visit that is meaningful to them. Visits are free for neighboring schools. We ask for a suggested donation of $5 per person if groups are able.
