National Park Service staff will greet you and your class when you arrive at Muir Woods. Staff will conduct a 15-minute talk on the ecosystem in a special outdoor classroom. Also, you will be provided with self-guides to aid you while hiking in the woods. Groups at the park on an educational visit will receive an admission-fee waiver.
