Parks as Classrooms
Mount Rainier National Park provides materials for three curricula. The "Sister Mountain Curriculum Project" explores the relationship between Mount Fuji and Mount Rainier; "Where the River Begins" traces the pathway of the Nisqually River; and "Living with a Volcano in Your Backyard" is a partnership project with the US Geologic Survey Cascade Volcano Observatory.
A variety of educational programs are available. Program formats include guided walks and hikes, talks, inquiry-based experiments, and demonstrations. Guided snowshoe walks are also available between January and April.
During the school year, park rangers may be available to visit your classroom as guest speakers.
