Program Reservations

Reservations are required for all curriculum-based education programs. Teachers that have attended an instructional workshop can make reservations beginning August 1st for the school year. Call 540-999-3489 to make a reservation for an education program. We offer programs from mid-April through early November.

Please be prepared to provide the following information: preferred date of visit, grade level and number of students, program name and time; and the names of the teachers who will be attending. We can provide assistance in determining the best location for your program. Have alternate dates in mind in case the date you want is already taken.

School groups may use the park for self-guided educational field trips. Reservations are not required, however, groups can request an educational fee waiver for free entrance to the park.
