Joshua Tree National Park invites you and your students to attend ranger-led education programs. Most in-class programs are 45 minutes long. Programs given in the park last from one and one-half to four hours.
There is no charge for education programs, but reservations are required and may be made a year in advance. Maximum group size will depend on the program and the number of park staff available. Most in-park programs are designed to accommodate two classes (60 students). Adult chaperones are required: one for each group of eight to 10 students. Some programs require four adults per class.
