School & Scout Groups

"I am a fourth-grade teacher and always on the lookout for fun, outdoorsy field trips for my students. RRA was able to customize a learning experience to complement my curriculum. The kids always have a great time!"

School Groups:

Reeves-Reed Arboretum's facilities, which include the Stackhouse Education Center, Roehm Greenhouse, 13 acres of gardens and woodland trails, our historic Wisner House, and of course, our spectacular trees, allow us to offer engaging and unique field trips. Our programs provide students with an inspiring, interactive educational experience that will perfectly complement their classroom instruction. Our field trips cover a variety of topics and are designed to align with the Next Generation Science Standards.

To schedule a school field trip, please contact Althea Llewellyn, Director of Education, at or 908-273-8787 ext. 1920.

Scout Groups:

Reeves-Reed Arboretum also offers programs for Scouts of all ages. Browse through our existing programs, which were specially created to satisfy badge requirements. If you do not see a specific badge, journey, or adventure, we are happy to work with you to create a program that meets your troop's goals! Whichever you choose, your Scouts will be guaranteed an interactive, hands-on lesson out on the beautiful grounds of the Arboretum!

Cost: All Scout programs are $75 for 12 or fewer scouts, then $5 per person for each additional scout.

Programs can be scheduled Tuesday – Friday between the hours of 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm. They typically last 1 hour. Programs can also be scheduled on select Saturdays at 10:00 am, depending on availability. To schedule a Scout program, please contact Linda Price, Environmental Educator, at or 908-273-8787 ext. 1313.
