Grand Canyon National Park's free distance learning programs offer students an exciting introduction to the science behind the park.

Condor's Flight presents the story of the endangered California Condor from living on the brink of extinction to their survival in the wild today within Grand Canyon National Park. Through a live and interactive lesson with park rangers via the internet, students learn about the ecological principles of adaptation and survival. The program lasts about one hour.
