Ranger-led Field Trips at Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon National Park provides the perfect outdoor setting to enhance classroom-based learning. Each spring and fall, the park's Environmental Education Branch offers 2.5-hour and 5-hour field trips for grades 3 through 12. During the programs, park rangers guide students through Grand Canyon geology, ecology, and human history. All field trips are curriculum-based and free of charge; most take place on the South Rim.
