CANCELED: California Citrus State Historic Park
April 2 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
California Citrus State Historic Park is an open-air museum in the state park system of California, interpreting the historic cultural landscape of the citrus industry. The story of the citrus industry’s role in the history and development of California is told in the visitor center.
On this field trip learners will experience the history of citrus from its origins to present day in a period setting replicating the height of the citrus industry in the Riverside area. Children will learn the significance of the citrus industry throughout California, and the world.
On the guided hike and museum tour, they will learn how California’s second gold rush (citrus) helped shape and develop California today (economically, culturally, and technologically). The treat of the field trip is the citrus sampling where children have an opportunity to see, feel, smell, and taste different varieties of citrus. This is a fabulous experience that makes an impression on many children, reinforces different ideas taught, and provides hands on learning.
Tickets are $2 and will become available February 6th at 10am.
This field trip is for iLEAD learners and their family only. No refunds available after purchase.
