Field Trips Relating to Your Home River

More than 6,000 students from area schools have already explored Paradise Creek Nature Park on field trips to learn the ecology of the Elizabeth River as it relates to Virginia Standards of Learning and environmental stewardship.

On April 3rd, 2018, Elizabeth River Project opened the Fred W. Beazley River Academy with an enclosed "green" classroom to expand student programs at the nature park even more. Over the next three years, we're also preparing a comprehensive pre-K to college curriculum, including homeschools, for the park and our companion education platform, the Learning Barge (currently docked at Grandy Village Learning Center), thanks to Hampton Roads Community Foundation and other funders.
