For over forty years, thousands of school students have visited the Monument annually to participate in our educational programs.
We try to accommodate educational program requests for students on a reservation basis, at the park. We also provide information and materials to facilitate teacher-led self guided class visits.
Take advantage of this opportunity for your students to learn about America's nationally significant cultural and natural resources located in northeast Iowa.
A detailed description of our program and resources is listed on the "Plan A Field Trip" page. If more information on reserving a ranger conducted program is nedded - contact the Monument at 563.873.3491, or by e-mail at www.nps.gov.
A phone call is always welcome and your message will be forwarded to the responsible staff.
