Invite a Virgin Islands National Park Ranger to your classroom! A Ranger can make a presentation to prepare students for a school field trip to the Park. Even if you're not planning a field trip, Rangers can speak to students about a variety of topics connected to the Park, such as the land and ocean plants & animals, archaeological evidence of the Taino people, the Danish sugar plantation era, and more. For a school Career Fair, Rangers can introduce students to careers within the National Park Service.
