Educational Programs

The Southern Conservation Trust offers a variety of interactive educational programs for your class or group. Our programs can be tailored to your curriculum and group objectives. We can come to your classroom or join us on a field trip to one of our eight public nature areas in Fayette County. As a registered 501c3 nonprofit organization, the Southern Conservation Trust relies on the support of the community to continue providing experiences that educate about our environment. To cover the costs of supplies, materials, and staffing we ask for a $5 donation per participant.
