Write Out

Write Out is a free two-week event October 8-22, 2023. It is a series of online activities where educators, students, and the public are invited to explore national parks and other public spaces to connect and learn through place-based writing and sharing. Write Out is in its sixth year and is sponsored annually by the National Writing Project and the National Park Service. Learn more at the Write Out website or learn about the National Writing Project at Kent State University.


The Teacher-Ranger-Teacher (TRT) program is an extended professional development opportunity for educators from K-12 schools to learn about the resources and educational materials available through the NPS. Participating teachers will have the opportunity to engage in parks and park resources, participate in a webinar about lesson planning, develop at least one lesson to be used in their classroom or school, assist the park with an education project, and increase their understanding of place-based learning.

Check back for information about future TRT seasons.
