Outdoor Eco Classroom - Youth Field Trip
Are you looking for an engaging environment outside the classroom? An environmental experience that will really grab hold of your child’s attention and imagination?

This fall PMEC is excited to offer outdoor programs that will compliment remote, online, and in-person learning. Using curriculum from our field trip, the PMEC educators have developed programming that is in line with the current curriculum standards. Students can come to PMEC to learn about science, nature, animals in the environment, and much more. 

Peabody Mill Environmental Center (PMEC) is an environmental and science education center which abuts almost 600 acres of Joe English conservation land. PMEC is located in Amherst, NH and is directed by the Amherst Parks and Recreation Department.

We will be following the proper state-directed and CDC guidelines, which includes physical distancing and face coverings. A maximum of 12 students is allowed for each class. All classes will have an element of outdoor time; if weather is a factor we will be able to hold class inside while maintaining 6 feet apart. 

Who: 2nd through 4th graders
Where: PMEC 66 Brook Rd Amherst, NH 03031
When: Wednesday September 23rd 9:00am – 12:00pm
Fee: $30R; $35NR
