Free Field Trips for San Francisco Schools

View the field trip descriptions. >

  • Includes free charter bus transportation or Muni tokens, and a pre-trip class presentation and chaperone support upon request.
  • Selected teachers must attend a workshop to schedule field trip dates and receive trip information and curriculum. Teachers from schools that have received the fewest field trips in the past five years are given priority.
  • Questions? Contact our School Education team at (415) 355-3742 or email [email protected].

Thank you for your interest in our Free Field Trip Program. Our applications have closed for the 2019-2020 academic year. Please look out for applications for the 2020-2021 academic year starting in Summer of 2020.
