The Lakeside Learning program is an educational field trip for 4th grade students. It is part of Project SLICE, a comprehensive standards-based initiative developed and administered by FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake. Our field trip season runs April 15 through 15 October. Other dates may be available upon request. Trips are approximately 2.5 hours long and take place at Antelope Island State Park. Trip size is limited to 75 students.

Our typical field trip program starts off with a visit to the playa, where we talk about wetlands, adaptations, the water cycle, and the unique features of Great Salt Lake. Next, students learn how to use binoculars and we travel over the causeway for birding activities. Our trips conclude with a visit to the beach at Ladyfinger Point where students learn about oolitic sand and wade in the lake for a hands-on experience with brine shrimp and brine flies.

We are pleased to offer financial assistance to public schools by offering FREE field trips PLUS bus transportation grants. For private schools and homeschool groups, we charge a small instructional fee and are unable to offer transportation grants at this time.
