High Point Christian, Summer 2009Field trips are always an exciting opportunity for students to visit new places and learn new things outside of the classroom. 

5 Rivers is a field trip destination for students of all ages. With an exhibit hall, theater, classrooms, nature trail and boat tours, we specialize in teaching about the vibrant natural resource that is in our backyard, the Mobile-Tensaw Delta.

With the nation’s second largest Delta as a launching point, other topics are easily covered, such as the importance of wetland habitats and water quality, conservation and land stewardship, and plants and animals of the Delta and beyond.
