Please scroll through the list of programs below to locate a program and date that is appropriate for your class, and click "Register online" to send your request to Acadia education staff. We will contact you to confirm the date and program details. Since this is the first season that the NPS is using the newly-developed system nationwide, and it was developed at the request of teachers, please provide feedback to us so that we can communicate it to the system developers at the national level. Please bear with us as we all test the system this spring. At the moment the "By Grade Range" selector is not functional; please instead select a date range using "Find a Field Trip By Date" and looking to see what grade level is listed in the program description.
