With its diverse resources, Lake Roosevelt has a lot to offer educators who would like to supplement their classroom lessons with excursions into the field or practical examples from the natural or cultural world. Though the current, formal educational offerings at Lake Roosevelt NRA are limited, our programs continue to expand. Most school groups that use Lake Roosevelt as an educational resource are from the local area, but we are more than happy to assist teachers from father away who would like to incorporate Lake Roosevelt's resources into their classrooms.
