Field Trip Requests are not currently being accepted for the 2017-2018 School Year. Bookings for the 2017-2018 School Year will be accepted in August 2017.

Thank you for your interest in booking a field trip with the Western Science Center!

Our aim is to provide an environment where kids are free to discover, interact, and explore the natural history of the Diamond Valley Lake region. Whether it’s determining the age of a fossil bison in our lab or meeting Max the Mastodon, our field trips are the perfect way to introduce your students to the wonders of science.

You can request a field trip in three easy steps!

1. Read Our Field Trip Guidelines

Please read our Field Trip Guidelines prior to requesting a field trip – the Guidelines will provide you with all of the information you need to ensure you and your students have a safe visit to the museum.
