Burris Park Outdoor Education is a collaborative effort of KCOE, the Burris Park Foundation and the County of Kings. During the 2014-15 school year, schools will have an opportunity to experience standards-based outdoor education activities in this beautiful setting in the northeastern portion of Kings County. There are different lessons for different seasons; this means that having outdoor education during both fall and spring highlights the way weather affects the park and its wildlife. Also located on the grounds of the park is the Kings County Museum. The museum has Native American artifacts, as well as many objects illustrating the history of the area.

Updated Burris Park Trail Information

9/11/2014

Burris Park is a place where students can demonstrate math and science concepts learned throughout the year.  We have continued to update curriculum for 4th and 5th and have developed new curriculum for  6th grade.  A typical day begins at approximately 9 and ends at approximately 2, customizable for your needs.  The focus has been on 4th 5th and now 6th grades, but we also have activities for other grades, in addition to specialized programs for preschool students and after school programs.

 

To make arrangements, or for any questions, please contact Leana Cantrell at leana.cantrell@kings.k12.ca.us or 559.589.2669.
