Each year the Park conducts a Teachers Workshop. The Workshop gives teachers an understanding of Natchez National Historical Park.
Teachers will have the opportunity to create lesson plans adaptive to their classroom and earn CEU's. Each year new subjects are taught through experiential learning. This years workshop will be June 17-21. For information on this years program contact Melissa at (601) 446-5790.
