A Field Trip to Dingmans Falls
Dingmans Falls and other sites are part of the Geology Curriculum.
The boardwalk trail at Dingmans Falls can offer a variety of learning opportunities. A standard ranger-guided Waterfall Walk addresses topics in water quality, geology, forest eco-systems, invasive species, and the National Park Service mission.
