Cumberland Island provides a vast array of opportunities for investigation and exploration. Lesson activities are designed to compliment class studies and reinforce concepts. Each activity has been correlated to the pertinent Georgia Performance Standards. While the activities have been designed to be used on Cumberland Island, some activities can be used in the school setting as well.
School groups can also participate in our daily Dungeness Footsteps history walk. The walk takes place twice daily, when a ranger is available and starts shortly after the ferry arrives at the Dungeness Dock.
Additional Ranger led programs may be scheduled once a ferry reservation is made and based on Ranger availability.
