Teachers Planning a Field Trip
Haystack Rock is a great destination for field trips! The Haystack Rock Awareness Program (HRAP) provides educational field trip programs that integrate observation, investigation, and exploration. The Marine Garden at Haystack Rock is home to many intertidal organisms like sea stars and hermit crabs. The National Wildlife Refuge provides essential nesting habitat for both shorebirds and seabirds. Watch this short educational DVD for a sneak preview!
