PARKS AS CLASSROOMS programs in Golden Gate National Parks - set in indigenous habitats and historic landmarks, ancient redwood groves and dramatic coastal preserve - actively engage students in inquiry learning about and caring for national parks and their own communities. Designed by park staff, classroom teachers, students, and leaders of community organizations, park education programs encourage student achievement through innovative pedagogy and authentic experiences in the park. The goals and principles of the K-12 program confirm Golden Gate's commitment to inclusive and relevant inquiry-based learning linked to school curricula.
All Parks as Classrooms programs are free. Click here to learn more about our education programs and view curriculum.
