With advance planning, a park ranger can work with you during your field trip. A limited number of guided programs are available per day. To ensure that your class is able to have a ranger-guided tour, it is best to submit your fee waiver request as far in advance as possible. Please contact Park Ranger Mike Weinstein by phone at (912) 786-5787 extension 213 or by e-mail at e-mail us to discuss the details of your program.
Large groups of 50 or more will be divided into sections, and the teachers will have to lead some portions of the group using the park's self-guided activities. It is easier to accommodate smaller groups, and the resulting programs are of higher quality. It is encouraged that larger groups split their field trip over the course of two or three days, if possible. Customized and interactive programs are available for smaller groups of 25 or less.
Ranger-guided activities include:
