The Extension Learning Farm at CCE can provide your classroom with an experiential learning opportunity that reinforces and brings to life the formal school curriculum. Field trips can be tailored to meet each classroom's individual needs, but always include a variety of hands-on lessons and activities led by experienced staff, interns, and volunteers. Programs are designed so that learning their outcomes align with school standards.
