What special benefits could my students gain from visiting this fieldtrip site?

When picking a fieldtrip site a teacher always needs to evaluate what educational benefits the students could gain. The Fullerton Arboretum would be a great fieldtrip because students could gain many things from visiting this site. First of all students are able to be outdoors. The Fullerton Arboretum is a good place to take a walk and observe the nature around. The students are able to observe many different kinds of plants and vegetation in a natural environment. There is a sign next to each plant. It has the scientific name of the plant and it's common, more well known name. Students are also able to observe the different types of environment that each plant grows in. For example, the Desert Collection will look much different from Woodlands Collection. Students also have an opportunity to observe some different types of animals. I observed some ducks, lizards, birds, and squirrels.
