The Natchez Trace Parkway has several Traveling Trunk Kits available for teachers to borrow for classroom use. Teachers may borrow kits for about 2 weeks. Please schedule Traveling Trunk Kits at least 2 weeks in advance.
Teachers are responsible for picking up and returning trunk kits.
Traveling Trunk Kits are not stored at all locations. It may be possible to have kits shuttled to the pickup location of your choice. However, please allow up to 3 week additional time for shuttling.
Individual parts of some kits may be borrowed.
Traveling Trunk Kits may be picked up at the Natchez Trace Parkway Visitor Centers at:
Mount Locust: milepost 15.5, near Natchez, MS

This project was financed in part by the National Park Service's CONNECT TRAILS TO PARKS program, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System in 2018. The Stream Kit and parts of other kits were funded by a National Park Foundation, Park Stewards grant.
