A field trip to the Natchez Trace Parkway will provide an opportunity for your students to be immersed in Parkway resources, and have experiences that can not be replicated in the classroom. All field trips are free of charge, and are scheduled based on ranger availability. Please have alternate days ready when scheduling your trip. Bus parking and restrooms are available at the Parkway Information Cabin.

If a field trip is not possible for your class, a ranger may be available to visit your classroom. Popular classroom activities include a "Skins and Skulls" animal classification program from our second grade curriculum, or a "Meet a Ranger" program to learn more about what a Park Ranger does.

To schedule a field trip to the Parkway Information Cabin, at milepost 102.4, or to arrange for a ranger to visit your classroom, please call 601-898-9417, and talk with Sandi Kavanaugh or e-mail us here.
