Get Wild Go Wild in Halifax County, NC

Make plans now to bring your class to Halifax County, North Carolina. Spend the day touring sites that will encourage your students to, “Get Wild & Go Wild”!  Don’t worry they will be very well behaved as they absorb all the interesting science and math education while having fun. 

Sylvan Heights Bird Park invites you to plan a field trip and observe the largest collection of waterfowl, including rare and endangered species, from all around the world. A field trip can be as simple as a self-guided tour of the park with your students, or, for a more in-depth experience, you may choose to add an educational program or activity. Guided educational tours are also available for grades 5 and up. Their programs provide direct interaction with animals - primarily birds, but also alligators, snakes, insects, and other creatures — customized programs and prices available on request. We offer hands-on educational programs meeting Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and NC Essential Standards (NCES) guidelines, including bird biology and wetland ecology. To learn more about on-site and outreach education programs, please view their programs by grade.  http://shwpark.com/education

Roanoke Canal Museum While in the area book your trip to The Roanoke Canal Museum & Trail.  The museum utilizes traditional and interactive exhibits to explain how the original canal – with its locks, culverts, and massive aqueduct – was built and turned the Roanoke River into a superhighway of commerce during the early 19th century. The story continues by explaining how the canal was transformed from a trade route into a hydroelectric power resource just over a century ago before becoming the greenway and historic site of today.
