Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site Field Trip

Many of our State Parks and Historic Sites offer school programs correlated with the Georgia Department of Education’s science and social science standards. Georgia's State Parks and Historic Sites provide unique settings that bring your classroom studies to life. From Civil War sites and historic homes to longleaf pine forests and salt marshes we have the cultural and natural resources that will make science and social science studies real for your students. Most sites offer school programs, and many have correlated their programs with the Department of Education's Georgia Standards of Excellence. Several parks and historic sites have museums or interpretive centers as well as videos about their sites. A few sites do not have the staff to conduct group programs but they do welcome field trips provided you have your own leaders. For added convenience, picnic areas, restrooms, bus parking and vending machines are often available.

Planning Your Visit

  • Winter is the easiest time to schedule field trips since spring and fall are exceptionally busy.
  • Make reservations at least 2 weeks in advance and confirm the day before.
  • Rates and programs are subject to change, so ask questions and be specific about your group's needs.
  • Ask if all amenities you plan to use will be available. Sites typically offer picnic areas, vending machines, gift shops, restrooms and bus parking. Some activities like mini-golf may be seasonal.
  • To ensure a quality visit for all guests, please clean up after your group. This is especially important in picnicking and group camping areas.
