Teachers are invited to join NatureBridge and the National Park Service for Learning from a Distance, a four-day summer workshop in Olympic National Park to be held August 7-10. Participants will hear from National Park Service rangers and researchers, discover the rich resources Olympic National Park has to offer, and learn ways to connect students to the park via technology.
 
The workshop will be held at the NatureBridge campus in Olympic National Park located on the shores of Lake Crescent. The tuition for the workshop is $200.

  • Learn about technology that will connect students in the classroom to a wealth of educational opportunities available through Olympic National Park.
