For Teachers

Plant the seed
A 2010 report by the National Wildlife Federation showed that outdoor education helps students become high performance learners with better standardized test scores and skill sets that will be with them through the course of their lives.

Capulin Volcano's classroom is filled with a wide variety of potential lessons, for both teachers and students, about the natural and cultural history of the area.

We invite you and your students to explore the park as an extension of your classroom. Self-guided and ranger-guided curriculum-based education programs are available. Professional development opportunities exist, as teachers can participate in the Teacher-Ranger-Teacher program each summer.

If you have questions, would like more information about education programs check out our Plan a Field Trip page or contact Ranger Lynn Cartmell by phone at 575-278-2201 x 231 or e-mail.
