For Teachers

school program

Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park offers a variety of educational programs to schools and educational institutions.

Ranger-led, grade level curriculum-based programs for school groups visiting Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park focus on geology, forest ecology, and Hawaiian culture. These programs are designed to help teachers meet State of Hawaiʻi curriculum requirements. Our goal is to provide students with field experience as a supplement to classroom learning through ranger-guided hikes and environmental programs.

Ranger-led programs are popular and staff is limited. Plan your field trip early. Our calendar fills up quickly. Please email your program request form to koa_johnasen@nps.gov at least three months in advance to schedule your visit.
