Group Logistics:

  • Maximum of 35 participants including at least one adult participant, per group. One Green-Wood educator will be assigned to guide each group.
  • We offer both walking and trolley tours. Walking tours are completely outdoors. Please also note that no outdoor area of the Cemetery is ADA compliant, however we will do our best to create wheelchair-friendly program routes whenever possible.
  • Green-Wood’s School Programs have several different starting locations. Make sure you know where you are scheduled to arrive before your visit.
  • Groups are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes early to use the restroom and check in.

School programs are 60, 75, or 90-minutes long and are led by experienced Green-Wood educators. All guided programs take place within a short distance of a Green-Wood entrance and restrooms. Programs can be scheduled Monday through Friday at 10:00am, 11:30am or 1:00pm. We can accommodate up to two groups per time slot. Participants are welcome to explore our grounds, self-guided, before and/or after their program during visiting hours.

All programs align to local, state, and national curriculum standards, and can be modified for different grade levels and learning needs. See a sample of our programs standards here. Age recommendations and program duration are listed with each program. When you book, please make sure to tell us about the units of study with which you would like your Green-Wood program to align.
