Education and the Arts
Each year the park and Center staff evaluate and make continual improvements and updates to our Classroom at Crater Lake education program for fourth and fifth graders.
Funding for Classroom at Crater Lake and the annual Teacher Workshop is made possible by a generous grant from the Crater Lake National Park Trust.
Contact our Education Coordinator for information on our current and upcoming programs.
Did You Know?
The depth of Crater Lake was first measured in 1886 with a simple sounding machine that consisted of a crank and a spool of piano wire. Those first measurements showed the lake to be 1,996 feet deep - not far off from the depth of 1,943 feet that was measured with high tech equipment in 2000!
