Day by the Buffalo
Buffalo National River invites you to participate in A Day by the Buffalo, a ranger-conducted program designed to introduce fourth and fifth grade students to the cultural and natural history of the Buffalo River and Ozarks region. Programs are aligned with fourth and fifth grade Arkansas Curriculum Frameworks. We focus on providing a thorough, quality experience for your students. Each topic curriculum includes pre- and post- field trip activities.
In the past, field trips have been concentrated in the spring after Benchmark testing is complete. Current and anticipated staffing levels prevent us from continuing this pattern. We encourage you to review your curriculum schedules and include A Day by the Buffalo programming throughout the school year whenever you are teaching the appropriate concepts. Reservations for Day by the Buffalo programs are accepted all year.
