Outdoor Classroom Curriculum

The Vine Trail Outdoor Classroom program was created to encourage teachers to bring their students to a wonderful outdoor classroom held on the Vine Trail. Grade-level experts from Napa County schools came together to create lesson plans conforming to state standards to be taught on the Vine Trail. By providing easy guidelines for teachers to follow it alleviates the burden of creating a successful lesson which will be executed in an unfamiliar setting. The Vine Trail hopes to help children complete the CDC’s recommended 60 minutes or more of physical activity per day by providing a safe space to walk or ride bicycles. By introducing children to the Vine Trail through their school, it allows equitable access and knowledge of the Vine Trail. With 18 schools within a half mile of the trail, many students will be able to walk from their schools, but there is still need to provide transportation to students who are traveling a further distance.

Register your class trip to the Vine Trail and we will provide you with additional materials.

Bus Grants are available through the Environmental Education Coalition of Napa County!
