School Programs

In School and After School Enrichment Programs 

Tree Frog Treks teaches fun interactive in and after school science enrichment programs that introduce kids to concepts in biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences and natural history. Our programs also allow them to meet live reptiles and amphibians face-to-face. We've developed themed curricula that cover integrated science topics and reinforce learning through hands-on science experiments, art projects, movement and song. Sessions run for 8-12 weeks depending on your school's scheduling needs. All of our lead teachers have college degrees and all have been trained by Tree Frog Treks to teach our curriculum and introduce children to live reptiles and amphibians.

School Visits and Assemblies 

In presentations led by an energetic and knowledgeable naturalist, we encourage children to see themselves as part of a larger system of natural life in which every organism plays an important part. Our naturalists will introduce children to our creeping, crawling and slithering co-workers, from tiny Leopard Geckos to 14-foot-long Burmese Pythons. We'll bring a variety of amphibians and reptiles, discuss how they're adapted to their natural habitats, and examine what role they play in the ecosystem. Our presentations can be tailored to meet your school's interests. Other themes and curricula are available.

Field Trips 

Tree Frog Treks offers several options for getting your class out of the classroom.  Experiential learning is a great way to get kids engaged and learning, and our Field Trip options will give your students an experience they’ll never forget!

Off-site Field Trips are opportunities for your class to explore the great outdoors with our experienced naturalists who are well-trained in local flora, fauna and natural history. With options like hiking in Tennessee Valley, exploring the tide pools at Duxbury Reef, or going on a Natural History scavenger hunt in Golden Gate Park, we can make your next field trip something extraordinary!  Each trip includes access to our reference materials, dip-nets, spotting-scopes, binoculars, bug boxes and our extensive collection of natural history specimens.  Off-site field trips can be geared to any size classroom or age group.

Frog Hall Field Trips are a chance for your class to go eye to eye and toe to toe with some of our amazing Animal Ambassadors!  Here at Frog Hall (2114 Hayes Street), our naturalists will introduce children to our creeping, crawling and slithering co-workers, from tiny Leopard Geckos to 14-foot-long Burmese Pythons. We'll meet a variety of amphibians and reptiles, discuss how  they're adapted to their natural habitats, and examine what role they play in the ecosystem. Our presentations can be tailored to meet the interests of your class. Due to space constraints, Frog Hall Field Trips are geared towards classes of 25 or fewer.
