Green Living Science provides field trips and tours of Recycle Here, the City of Detroit’s drop off recycling facility, as well as the Lincoln Street Art Park during the months of March to November. In 2018 we are switching up our field trips! So come check out what is new! 


This year we are offering a two hour tour where visitors will explore Recycle Here!, the Lincoln Street Art Park AND participate in an age appropriate activity in Green Living Science's outdoor classroom!

Students will learn about the items that can be recycled at Recycle Here! Students will discover how they can make changes in their home life to reduce their impact on the environment. 

Bring materials to recycle and receive an in depth explanation of how to recycle in the City of Detroit. By visiting the recycling center and hearing how Detroit processes waste, students learn how they can make changes in their home to reduce their impact on the environment. Visit for a list of what can be recycled.

Tours also include a visit to the Lincoln Street Art Park to learn how the process of “reuse” can create a vibrant urban setting. Inside the art park students will experience...

  • Outdoor Classroom: a 40 foot shipping container converted into an outdoor classroom made entirely from found and reused materials. 
  • Environmental Education Activity: students will participate in age appropriate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) based, hands-on activities that enhance their understanding of conserving natural resources. 
  • Earthship: Students will get to explore the sustainable building created from locally sourced garbage during the art park scavenger hunt!
