Environmental Education Program
Mammoth Cave National Park's Environmental Education Program serves students and educators from across Kentucky and neighboring states through topic specific, four-and-a-half hour "extended classroom" programs at the park. Classroom programs are also available to schools located in the ten-county Barren River Area Development District (BRADD). BRADD communities partner with the park as a part of the Mammoth Cave Man and the Biosphere Reserve and have a common interest in the groundwater resources that flow into and through the park.
If you are an educator, please feel free to contact us for further information about our programs and publications.
Did You Know?
Native Americans of the Early Woodland period gathered minerals from Mammoth Cave between 2,000 and 4,000 years ago ... no one knows why. Objects they left behind – slippers, cane torches, gourds, and mussel shells – remain perfectly preserved in the cave.
