Are you a teacher looking for a great field trip destination? Well look no further then the WWC. With the rise in fuel costs, schools are looking for field trip destinations close to home.

Our knowledgeable staff will work with your students to introduce, build upon and/or reinforce topics discussed in the classroom such as plants, animal life cycles and ecosystems.

Charley wrote a great article about our program and we thank him for coming out to spend the morning with. You can read Charley's article in School News Network.
