Living Classrooms

Program Highlights

Kids can learn about nature from environmental experts during our semester-long classes each fall and spring. Students will use the great outdoors as a classroom as they learn about environmental science and the many intricacies of nature from the experts. The weekly classes are two-hours long and will take place on national park grounds.


The Living Classroom program is available at 12 national parks across the United States. There are two semester-long sessions available at each location, revolving around local school schedules in the fall and the spring. See our contact information below to find the park closest to you and register today.
