Outreach Education Program

Zion Outreach
Zion Outreach is a program in which park rangers visit schools in surrounding communities and conduct curriculum-based programs for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. Park staff use a variety of educational techniques and approaches to improve understanding and retention of the associated subject matter. Programs may include PowerPoint presentations, games, discussions, and/or activities. Pre-arrival packets containing pre- and post-visit activities are located on the Curriculum Materials page. All programs are between 45-60 minutes long.
