Educators' Corner

Welcome to the Educator’s Corner for our Trees and Trails Field Trips! My name is Sarah Rayner and I am a retired Biology teacher. My motivation for having an Educator’s Corner is to provide teachers with lesson plans and interactive activities that address the National Standards in education. As a former teacher, I know that the paperwork involved in preparing for a field trip can be a time-consuming and daunting process. My hope is that the educational information presented will reduce preparation for the field trip, and provide exciting pre and post trip activities to use in the classroom.

Please contact me if you would like more information. My email is, and my phone is 225-763-3990, ext. 3.
