Allegheny Portage Railroad: An On the Level Field Trip Experience that STEMs from History

Allegheny Portage RR NHS invites students and teachers to explore the park on a ranger led field trip. Programs address concepts identified in the Pennsylvania Standards Aligned System for History, Geography and Science and Technology subjects in grades third through sixth. Plus, the very story of the Allegheny Portage Railroad ties in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) components and Rangers provide hands-on programs addressing them.  Click here for reservation and fee info.
