Discovery Field Trips opens first program for middle school students
On Friday, Birmingham Botanical Gardens greeted the first Discovery Field Trip designed for middle school children. Over the last decade, Discovery Field Trips has provided a free, curriculum-based science education for nearly 100,000 Birmingham area elementary students, and on Friday, Highlands School sent a group of sixth graders to The Gardens to become the first middle school to take advantage of the program.
