Distance Learning Begins Again February 5, 2024!
Great Sand Dunes offers free distance learning programs to classrooms and groups of all ages! Our Education Ranger will start taking program reservations on February 1, 2024.
Educators can connect with our Great Sand Dunes Education Ranger to learn more about geology (sand dunes, mountain building), ecology (wildlife, endemic insects, habitats, adaptations), cultural history, and the NPS mission. If you ever wondered about a career in the Park Service, you can learn more by interviewing a park ranger.
Our Education Ranger is happy to meet teacher needs with a 20-40 minute live program. If you are interested, you will need a computer, tablet, or device with a webcam, internet connection, and access to a video conference platform.
Our Education Ranger can meet you through Zoom, Google Meets, Teams and more. Great Sand Dunes is on Mountain Standard Time. Keep that in mind when scheduling your virtual field trip.

- Group name, number of students, and student grade/age range
