Environmental Education Speakers
If your school is within one-hour of the park, you may be able to arrange to have an education interpreter come to your classroom. For classroom programs as well as in-park programs, we have a class size policy and will work with one class (up to 30 students) at a time, but are happy to do multiple programs to accommodate more than one class. We are however, unable to do assemblies in the classroom.
To arrange a program in your classroom, call the Interpretation Division at 218-283-6670 at least 2 weeks in advance of your desired program date; please have alternative dates available as well.

The course is one hour long. Classes require a minimum of 10 students and a maximum size of 20.
To arrange a presentation in your classroom, call the Interpretation Division at 218-283-6670 at least 1 month in advance of your desired program date; please have alternative dates available as well.
