Ranger-led programs offered during the school year are conducted in a variety of locations on both the west and east sides of the Continental Divide and must be scheduled in advance.
2017-18 School Year
Reservations for ranger-led programs will begin at 8 am on August 21, 2017. We will not be taking reservations by phone. Please use the reservation form which will become "live" at that time. If you are having difficulty with the reservation form, you can contact the Education Specialist at 406-888-5837. Due to increasing demands for programs, schools will be restricted to one ranger-led program per class per year to allow more children to participate.
Educators are also encouraged to bring students to the park on their own. Please see our self-guided page for information about applying for an academic fee waiver, safety, and tips for visiting the park with school groups.
Descriptions of each field trip can be found below with links to more information and the reservation form. If you already know what field trip you are interested in, you can click here for the reservation form.
