Best practices for field days

Field days are community events that bring together professionals, volunteers and teachers with school children for a day of learning about their environment. They happen indoors or outdoors, for any number of students, for any age group.

In educational field days, students rotate through multiple presentations on environmental topics. Science Fairs, Agricultural Days, Conservation Days, Environmental Days, and Water Festivals are all examples of field days.

Extension provides research-based support to those involved in the creation and implementation of field days. We have put together an extensive guidebook, customized workshops, and other tools to assist you in designing your field day using best practices.
