Plan A Field Trip
Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) provides an ideal setting for a variety of educational experiences.
Day Programs For Your School are a chance for children to explore ecology, natural history and Ohio history, either in CVNP or in the classroom.
The environmental education curriculum of the CVEEC’s 4-day, 3- night resident program, All the Rivers Run, is taught to students in grades 4 - 8. Time is spent mostly outdoors discovering the diversity of plant and animal life in CVNP, learning about sustainable living, and exploring the intricacies of the Cuyahoga River watershed. Hiking, singing, creating, sharing and learning are all a part of this hands-on, high energy experience.
