For Teachers

The National Park Service is one of the United States' leading agencies for protecting treasured landscapes, history, and culture. Parks give us the opportunity to not only learn about the natural resources in the park and discover American stories, but to also learn a little bit more about ourselves as we explore and experience these valuable places.
