Student Field Trips

The L.A. Conservancy's student tours are about much more than historic architecture in Los Angeles: they’re filled with inspirational stories reflecting the rich diversity of the people​ behind the places.

Enrich your student's learning experience beyond the textbook, take them on an in-person Student Walking Tour or virtual field trip: an entertaining mix of architectural and cultural Los Angeles history!
Please email us at education@laconservancy.org to learn more about Student Field Trips.
