The nationwide "Teacher-Ranger-Teacher" program is a great opportunity for professional development. Craters of the Moon is one of many parks that sponsors a teacher to assist our education team during the summer and bring the park back to their classroom in the fall. Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is offering an exciting opportunity for a local teacher to work and receive a stipend for educating students and visitors about the wonders of your local national park. We are looking for an interested teacher from one of the counties that border the monument (Butte, Minidoka and Power)* to collaborate with our education team this summer. The selected candidate will receive a $3000 stipend for this 5 week professional development opportunity. Training would be provided. Shared on-site housing may be available.
Contact the park Education Specialist for more information.
*We have already had Teacher-Rangers from Blaine and Lincoln Counties.

"the Devil's Vomit" is how one Oregon- bound pioneer described his encounter with Craters of the Moon. Hundreds of pioneers travelled through the area on the Goodale's Cutoff section of the Oregon trail in the 1850's and 1860's.
