LANDMARK PARK ACCEPTING FIELD TRIP RESERVATIONS
DOTHAN, Ala. -- Landmark Park, home of the Alabama Agricultural Museum, is now taking reservations for school field trips during the current school year, according to Laura VanLandingham, public relations director for the 100-acre park.
Each year, the park hosts thousands of public, private and home-schooled students in grades K-12 in an effort to educate them about the state's agrarian past. The next event is Cane Grinding Day, set Oct. 23, 9 a.m.-1 p.m., when park visitors will learn about peanut picking, syrup-making and other traditional fall farm activities.
Other field trip choices include history programs, nature programs and more. Teachers are also encouraged to use the park as their own outdoor classrooms with a self-led tour of the boardwalk and nature trails. After a program, students can visit the gift shop, Shelley General Store and Martin Drugstore for souvenirs and ice cream. The Barnyard playground is also open to school groups.
Landmark Park is on U.S. 431 North in Dothan. For more information, visit www.LandmarkPark.com. To register a class, contact the park at (334) 794-3452.
