​Life Safety Study Trips

We coordinate with school districts, homeschools, private schools, and other organizations to schedule FREE “Study Trips.” These unique expeditions outside of the traditional classroom give students the opportunity to learn life safety lessons in a specialized, hands-on environment. If you are a teacher and would like to have your students visit Life Safety Park, find more information about registering by clicking the link under your class grade level. If you are a parent and would like your child to visit Life Safety Park during the school year, please talk to your child's teacher about what Life Safety Park has to offer! Specific curriculum is set for each grade level:

​Joint LSP/BEC Study Trips

Life Safety Park and Biodiversity Education Center are proud to again offer free joint field trip opportunities for larger groups (up to 120 students) within Coppell ISD! While one group of up to 60 students visits Life Safety Park for a two hour session, another group of 60 students will participate in Biodiversity Education Center programming at the same time. After a break for lunch, groups will then 'switch' facilities for the afternoon session. Please note that these are two separate facilities: transportation will be required between sites.

Your visit to the LSP will include an educational safety lesson, with topic determined by grade level (see outline above), as well as hands-on time relevant to the safety topic.
