The natural resources of Nez Perce National Historical Park are diverse and complex. The park sites, scattered throughout four states, are mostly small pockets of land surrounded by a patchwork of private, local, state, tribal, and federal lands.

To experience this special place, we have provided all of the information that you need to schedule a program and get information on how to use the story of the Nez Perce in your classroom. Enjoy your visit!

Kids & Youth
During the school year we offer activities for school groups and everyday of the year you can come in and enjoy our Junior Ranger program.

Managers make informed decisions based on National Park Service policies and park planning documents. The park's primary planning tools, the General Management Plan and Comprehensive Interpretive Plan are included as part of this website.
