Mounds of Knowledge

We encourage you to use this park as your classroom to explore and learn about the pre-historic Hopewell.  Bring your class to the park for an unforgettable field trip or invite a Ranger as a guest speaker to visit your students in your classroom. We also offer free professional development programs at the park in the summer.  Coming soon, our new distance learning program will offer curriculum-based education programs for your classroom via live video broadcasts.
