Western National Parks Association (WNPA), a nonprofit education partner with the National Park Service, supports more than 70 parks across the western United States that develops products, services, and programs that enrich the visitor experience.
Since 1938, WNPA has worked to connect new generations to parks in meaningful ways. They do this by making educational materials available to the public in their stores. Merchandise includes books, journals, educational games and t-shirts, junior ranger items, bookmarks, and posters that help tell the story of each park.
Please inquire about the very informative audio guide that is available to rent for $5 per day at the WNPA store in the visitor center. You may listen to this audio tour as you walk through the cavern, stop-by-stop, listening to information about the cavern that is interesting and educational. Available languages include English, Spanish, German, Japanese, and Mandarin Chinese. A children's version is also available in English.
