Elementary school teachers, leaders or educators can use these guides for preparing a field trip.  Each guide gives details about the logistics for formal teacher/ranger led programs, as well as lots of background information for pre-site and on-site teaching.

While these guides are written for teachers partaking in formal ranger/teacher-led programs, they are helpful for any group doing a "self-guided", or "special request" field trip.

Locations include Shark Valley, Royal Palm, Hidden Lake and Loop Road camps, and also the Dry Tortugas National Park.
