Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Dec. 5, 2016 (Deadline Nov. 29) Bham: Southern Environmental Center Field Trip

Southern Environmental Center
Birmingham Southern College
900 Arkadelphia Road
Birmingham, AL 35254

Building 1 on the map:

December 5, 2016
10 a.m. until noon

$5 per person

4 and up

We will meet outside the center at 9:50 and head in together at 10.

We will:
Visit The Interactive Museum (TIM), a two-story environmental showcase that challenges visitors to slide down a giant sewage pipe, lift a week's worth of garbage, or identify the sources of air pollution on a moving city scape model.

Tour the nearby EcoScape, a 4-acre outdoor classroom with paths winding through a miniature Mobile Basin wetland, past beneficial bug sculptures and fragrance gardens, and along the Appalachian Trail to a two-story treehouse. Learn about medicinal plants, edible landscapes, and sustainable landscape practices.

Complete your visit by making EcoArt. Transform discarded telephone wires, bottle caps, old CDs and more into home jewelry.

Younger siblings can not attend this field trip.

Closed toed shoes are recommended. Dress for the weather as part of the day we will be outdoors (unless it’s raining).

There are picnic tables nearby for lunch afterward, or if it is chilly, we are welcome to use the college food court.

Deadline to signup, pay, and cancellation is Nov. 29.  Please RSVP to Esther at roamschool@gmail.com with your headcount by November 29th.  Payment can be made via PayPal or personal check.

This event is open to all homeschoolers. Please review the Everest Academy Participation Policy before attending any of our events.
