Ranger with students on beach
A teachable moment after students find a ghost crab. Students participating in the NPS education programs learn about life and earth sciences through hands-on, experiencial learning opportunities.


Assateague Island National Seashore offers free, fun, standards-based activities and programs for all grade levels. From puppet shows to beach to bay walks, park educators employ a variety of teaching techniques to reach the varied learning styles and age levels. All of our education programs are free and we offer entrance fee waivers to bonafide academic institutions.

We accept registrations on a first come-first served basis and will begin to accept fall registrations on August 20, 2018. The date for spring program registration for 2019 has not yet been determined. If you have questions about our education programs or if you would like to reserve a spot for a field trip, please contact the Education Office at (410) 629-6077 or email us with your question.
