Distance Learning

Ranger video-chatting with students in a classroom
If getting to Yosemite is challenging, we have the solution. Consider scheduling a distance learning program for your students or youth program--using the Internet. We can arrange for an education ranger to provide a Parks as Classrooms program right into a classroom or youth center. Any Parks as Classrooms ranger programs topic can take place in a distance learning setting. Additionally, the park's education team can work with you to develop the perfect program for your classroom on virtually any park-related topic. For more information email us or call the education team at 209/375-9503 for assistance.
