Afield with Upham Woods
Recreate your Upham Woods field trip this year!
Embark on a classic Ranger Mac and Upham Woods journey where you and your students will explore your own nature-hoods more closely. The Upham Woods team will work with you to translate your last field trip at Upham into an online experience featuring asynchronous and synchronous activities. This is a new opportunity to connect Upham and our resources to your curriculum more closely. Is there a particular unit you thought Upham Woods would always work well with? We can schedule your virtual field trip any time during the school year.
