Strawberry Plains Audubon Center is commited to providing a positive learning experience for all children. Our school and field trip programs are designed for the specific age group that is participating. While our programming is structured to meet the standards of the Mississippi and Tennessee Department of Education benchmarks and objectives, we offer designed curricula to accomodate your classe's topics and interests.
For more information contact Mitch Robinson at mrrobinson@audubon.org or 662-252-1155


Admission for school groups is $5 per student. One teacher/chaperone per 10 students is admitted free. Additional teachers/chaperones are $5 each. You may pay for admission with cash or a school check made payable to Audubon Mississippi. One adult should pay for the entire group. Group size is limited to 50 students per program. If your group is larger than 50 students, plan to book two field trips, or give us a call to discuss options (662-252-1155).

Tips for a terrific trip:
Students and teachers should dress appropriately for walking outdoors in the prevailing weather conditions. Long pants, socks, and closed-toe shoes are recommended. Please do not wear open toe shoes.

You may bring lunch to Strawberry Plains. However, for the safety of our guests, please do not bring glass containers. Groups may eat lunch in Strawberry Plains Audubon Center’s outdoor picnic area.
