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.

Cattle drives rarely went more than ten or twelve miles a day. The cattle had to be given time to rest and graze. A drive from Texas to Montana could take up to five months. Kohrs bought two-year-old steers and brought them north to graze on the rich grasses of eastern Montana.
