Field Trips: Kiawah Environmental Studies Program

Field Trips at Kiawah Island Resort

The mission of the Kiawah Island Nature Program is to educate young people about the wonders of our natural resources through hands-on experience. We use an up-close and personal approach to nature to get students interested and excited about the biological concepts covered in the South Carolina Science Standards. We offer presentations in your classroom as well as field trip experiences to beautiful Kiawah Island.

The school curriculum of the Kiawah Island Nature Program is designed to supplement classroom learning with an exciting and different approach to studying the nature that surrounds us. Students leave with a greater understanding and appreciation for our coastal areas, all while having a fun and unforgettable experience!
