For Teachers

Hot Springs National Park Education Team is pleased to offer a variety of free education opportunities for k-12 classes, college courses, and adult education groups. These programs explore the search for health and healing in the stories of Bathhouse Row, the ecosystems found in this corner of the Ouachita Mountains, and the origins of the 143 degree spring waters. These specialized programs are available through in-park field trips, in classroom visits, and on virtual platforms.
