On-going educational programs and opportunities:
Their offerings for kids can generally be divided into two categories: field studies and public programs. Field studies are the preK-12 “field trip” offerings; for each grade level, there are two programs (one forest ecology, one social studies) based on SC state standards. You can find a listing here: https://hobcawbarony.org/for-teachers/field-studies-pre-k-12. Field studies are scheduled through the Sara Beth Freytag, Coordinator of Children and Youth Education, and are $5/child; 30-minute virtual adaptations are available for $50.
Public programs, on the other hand, are programs offered on specific days and times and vary seasonally. These require reservations through the website: https://hobcawbarony.org/visit/childrens-programs. Currently posted are programs from now until February 2023. The most popular public program is Coastal Ecology Camp.
Brookgreen Gardens offers many education opportunities for youth and adults. Their field trip curriculums are designed to work with teachers and help them prepare students for their Brookgreen visit and be able to measure what students learned afterward.
They offer monthly programs for homeschool students, which gives them an opportunity to visit the Gardens, interact with other students, and learn in a group environment.
