Special Places in Down Jersey for Field Trips
Online Registration Form

The purpose of this form is for teachers to share with others interpretive opportunities where they have taken their students on meaningful field trips and excursions within the region called Down Jersey. By registering your special places, you will be providing many others with a unique insight into where to go for valuable field and interpretation activities with their students. Your information provided about these sites may be selected and posted via Citizens United to Protect the Maurice River and Its Tributaries, Inc.’s Web site. Inherent to the philosophy of Citizens United and their Down Jersey - Celebrating Our Sense of Place teachers’ packet is the belief that stewardship begins with an appreciation and awareness of the places we call home. Teachers who take the time to share and visit historical, cultural and natural areas with their students provide a critical link to making learning real and meaningful - it is what instills a pride of place. Please take the time to complete the following form so that we may pass on your knowledge of the region to others who would also like to explore the Down Jersey region. Please only submit finished and complete registrations; Citizens United reserves the right to edit all submissions. A word of apology for the extensive detail requested in the registration form; we are merely attempting to provide the necessary information so that others may enjoy a successful experience on their excursion. Thank you in advance for taking the time to share.
