To schedule your fee-based curriculum-correlated program
- Step 1: Check for available dates on the Prairie Ridge Field Trip Calendar. Dates that are already taken are listed on the calendar. Select three open dates that will potentially work for your group. Note: we accept field trip requests on a first-come, first-served basis. The calendar is updated as requests are processed and may not reflect every registration. If the dates you choose have been reserved, you will be asked to choose other dates.
