Classroom Ranger

We are currently on hold for scheduling Classroom Ranger programs.



A ranger will visit your school to present a standards-based education program. Classroom programs are available for grades 3-5 in Ventura County. Programs are approximately 45 minutes in length and free of charge. Reservations are required and should be made well in advance, especially for spring programs.
