Field Trip Program

Thank you for your interest in Field Trips. Applications were due in August. Check back next year for updates to the program. 

Free Field Trips for San Francisco Schools!

  • Includes free charter bus transportation or Muni tokens, and a pre-trip class presentation.
  • 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.
