Big South Fork offers a unique opportunity for teachers to use their teaching skills in a different setting. The Teacher to Ranger to Teacher program allows for a local teacher to become a park ranger for a summer. During this time the teacher dons the familiar gray and green uniform with a ranger hat. They bring their teaching skills to the outdoors and learn new ways to interpret the natural and cultural resources present in the park. These lessons are brought back to the classroom and shared with their students.
