California Waterfowl’s field programs get kids outside and exploring the world of waterfowl.

On field trips, students trek through the marsh, getting their hands dirty with soil science, hunting for insects and using binoculars to spot wildlife. And through it all, we emphasize the importance of conservation and the valuable role hunters play in protecting waterfowl and their habitat. Field trips are FREE. The only costs that schools will need to cover is transportation. Transportation scholarships are available for schools in need.
