Teacher to Ranger to Teacher
National parks connect people to the natural and cultural heritage of the United States, but many American children aren’t reached by current park offerings. The Teacher to Ranger to Teacher (TRT) program offers one solution.
Under TRT, selected teachers spend their summer working as park rangers, often living in a park. They perform various duties depending on their interests and the needs of the park, including developing and presenting programs for the general public, staffing the visitor center desk, developing curriculum-based materials for the park, or taking on special projects.
