Bring your students to the park or invite a ranger into your classroom! National Park Service programs are curriculum-driven and based on the standards of learning for Virginia or North Carolina. The National Park Service and the Blue Ridge Parkway are committed to helping teachers and students develop a deep understanding of park stories and resources through a variety of fun and engaging programs and activities. Through our curriculum based program, we can introduce students to the wonders of nature or make history come alive. Email the park for information.
What teachers are saying:
The Parks as Classrooms programs reinforce what we learn in the classroom.
The Parks as Classrooms program was a wonderful experience for our children. The Park Rangers are very informative and great with the students. The students are super excited and learn much more from this experience than just being told something by a teacher.
