The nationwide "Teacher-Ranger-Teacher" program is a great opportunity for an educator to work as a seasonal park ranger. Denali is one of many parks that hires a teacher-ranger-teacher to assist our education team during the summer and bring the park back to their classroom in the fall. In 2013 two amazing TRTs from local schools helped develop paleontology education materials highlighting Denali's rich dinosaur history. Keep an eye on this page in mid-winter, 2013-14 for next year's program hiring; or follow the link above to find other parks that are hiring TRTs.

Nearly 500 vegetation plots have been installed in Denali, to monitor climate change. Warmer temperatures allow woody plants to grow at higher elevations, invading the fragile and unique plants already in high alpine tundra - and threatening the animals that depend on those specialized plants.
