As an educator, you know that the best way to learn something new is through first-hand experience. Through resource immersion and hands-on field work, teachers gain a better understanding of Grant-Kohrs Ranch and to learn about the resources and educational materials the park has available.
Teacher-Ranger-Teachers at Grant-Kohrs Ranch will develop and present interpretive programs, write and/or review curriculum-based school activities for all grades, work in the visitor center, and assist the Education Technician with implementing summer youth programs. There are also opportunities for the TRT to work on other projects or assist with special activities.

Crusty old cowboys were mainly an invention of movies. Most cowboys were young, some only eleven or twelve. By the time they were in their mid-20s, most had taken up ranching on their own or found a less strenuous way of life. Yet, some kept cowboying as long as they could stay in the saddle.
