New 2019 Heritage Fieldtrips

New 2019 Heritage Fieldtrips

Autrey Mill is pleased to offer several new field tip offerings to our programs inspiring exploration of the natural environment and local history. Each features a topic unique to Georgia. Thanks to the City of Johns Creek, The Johns Creek Foundation, and Sawnee Electrical each field trip participant will have the opportunity to tour the newly renovated FARM MUSEUM!

The program fee is $10 per child participant. The program minimum is $100 (or %50 of your total) and is due upon reservation. Any remaining balance is due on your program date. These programs last approximately 90 minutes. After your program, we will reserve 30 minutes at the Pole Barn for a lunch of snack. Each program can be tailored to your group’s grade or age, but is most appropriate for grades K-8.
