Lindsay Visits You

Attention, educators of Contra Costa County and Alameda County County! Lindsay is proud to announce the debut of our new Lindsay in the Classroom programs. For each grade level, we went straight to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in order to design new programs that satisfy specific learning objectives. In addition to our new grade-specific programs, we have kept a few old favorites for all grade levels to enjoy.

AVAILABILITY: Tuesday through Friday. With a maximum of three programs per day– if booking more than one program please note that we will only allow an hour break in total between the programs. Your school must be in Contra Costa County or Alameda County to book a Lindsay in the Classroom program.

START TIME: 10:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m is the earliest; depending on travel distance from Lindsay Wildlife Experience. 2:00 p.m. is our latest start time for Lindsay in the Classroom programs.

DURATION: 60 minutes

GROUP SIZE: one classroom per program

COST: $240; $275 for programs that include a raptor (Owl program and Animals of Mt. Diablo program)

FORMAT: One-hour classroom program in which Lindsay animals and Wildlife Educators visit your location.  For the animals’ safety and success of the program, Lindsay asks for one indoor or outdoor location (classroom, library, or multi-purpose room).
