Plan Your Channel Islands Field Trip
The park invites you and your students to participate in curriculum-based education programs. These programs are available for school and other organized groups year round at the Robert J. Lagomarsino Visitor Center in Ventura and on park islands.
If you're not able to bring your students to the park, bring the islands to your classroom through Channel Islands Live. Visit Distance Learning for more information.
