A typical field trip includes a live animal encounter demonstration (actually touching the baby gator or other animals is carefully supervised and entirely optional) and a planetarium show (our 44′ directional-dome planetarium seats 87, with three wheelchair spaces bringing the total to 90), with an option for a Guided Trail Hike as well.

If you know what you’d like to include in your field trip, you can proceed to our Booking Request form. Remember, you must include contact information — and your booking is NOT assured until someone contacts you from Calusa Nature Center (usually via email) to confirm it. This is because there may already be a field trip or rental occurring on your chosen date/time.
Our Planetarium Director will be happy to assist you in choosing current, age-appropriate and subject-appropriate material for the planetarium portion of your field trip! Email the Planetarium Director here.
Remember that most field trips also require the availability of transportation. Calusa does not have the resources to provide transportation at this time. Thank you for your interest, and we hope to see you soon!
