The Sear Family Foundation Endowment allows us to provide free field trips to 4th grade students from local Title I schools. This experience informs students about the powerful and successful Calusa who once lived in southwest Florida. Fourth grade students from non Title I schools are welcome to visit for a nominal fee of $4 per student.
For more information, Call 239-283-2157.
D ue to damage from Hurricane Ian, we are unable to offer field trips at the Calusa Heritage Trail. Fortunately, we have found a great partner in the Cape Coral Museum of History. We are able to offer field trips at their facility. During these trips, students tour the Cape Coral Museum of History and participate in activities created to teach them about the amazing achievements of the Calusa people.
Artifacts, tool replicas, and museum quality trail signage also bring the past to life for the students. The tour is recommended for students in grades 4 or 8 and can be tailored for other groups.
Title 1 schools are not responsible for fees. RRC requests a per student donation of $4 for the services of staff and docents and to support the mission of preservation. The RRC is a non-profit program and does not receive State or University funding for its operations. However, if these tours are part of a classroom curriculum, and if RRC has space available, students will not be turned away if the school is unable to provide the $4 per student donation.
Field Trips must be scheduled and confirmed ahead of time. Bus parking, restrooms and picnic tables are available. Students should dress for outdoor weather conditions and wear sturdy tie-on shoes, no sandals. Chaperones are welcome. Schools are responsible for all transportation arrangements and costs. Title 1 schools are not responsible for transportation costs.
