The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area strives to help educate people of all ages to the park and its resources. All ranger programs are curriculum-based and free of charge. We currently offer two options.

Field Study
A ranger-led Field Study is a great way for your students to learn about the natural and cultural resources of the Chattahoochee River corridor while visiting the park. Besides the visit to the park the class will receive pre and post-visit material and a vist to the classroom. We are able to accommodate two classes per day for a field study. Plan on your visit to the park taking most of the day. Transportation to the park is the responsibility of the school although sometimes the park has some funds avaiable.

We also provide In-school programs for classes unable to visit the park. Creative Classroom programs are presented by a park ranger or park volunteer in the classroom or school grounds. They typically last for 30 to 45 minutes. Up to five classes may be visited during the day. In-School Field Trip programs are presented by a park ranger with the assistance of a park volunteer. The programs require a large program area (i.e. empty classroom, cafeteria, outside space, etc.) and assistance from additional school/parent volunteers.

For more information or to register for a ranger program, please contact the park at 678-538-1200.
