Mountain Lake PBS Field Trips

Want to give your group an interesting behind-the-scenes look at television and media production? Bring your classroom, 4-H club, homeschool group, or scout troop to our Plattsburgh, NY station for a Field Trip!

Learners of all ages from the Adirondacks, Champlain Valley, and Montréal can take a guided tour of the Mountain Lake PBS studio, meet and great with staff members, and engage in a variety of hands-on experiences.

Tours run between 30 minutes to 1 hour long. Ample parking is available in the station lot.

What Does a Field Trip Include?

  • Take a guided tour of the production studio.
    Learn about what we do in the studio, from filming interviews, debates and fundraising specials, to the types of equipment you’ll find there.
  • After the tour is time for hands-on fun!
    Try out the cameras, microphones, and other studio equipment. Practice anchoring your own show or direct the shots from the control room.
  • Join a sit-down Q&A session with a member of our Production Team.
    Learn about what it’s like to be a producer, editor, or on-air host.

Mountain Lake PBS is committed to inspiring, engaging, and enriching our community through education, creativity, and inclusivity. Station field trips are a valuable opportunity for local schools and community organizations to partner with public media, highlighting the power of local journalism, while showcasing career pathways in television, broadcasting and media.
