Parks as Classrooms
Blue Ridge Parkway staff offers programs for students in their classrooms during the school year. The aim is to connect students with the natural world and the region’s cultural heritage in ways that are real and meaningful, while meeting state curriculum standards.
In the spring and fall, Rangers offer programs at many locations along the Parkway. Teachers should contact the closest Parkway office as soon as possible to schedule field trips. Keep in mind that space is limited and programs are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
We know that our best hope for the future lies in educating today’s children!
