About Our Program
Thank you for your interest in our program! We offer curriculum-based educational programs for school groups in grades 3-5. Other ages are welcome to visit for educational purposes. Cave tours and teacher-led field activities are free of charge for groups utilizing the Monument's resources to extend their district or state curriculum, but not for recreation purposes. We hope you will take advantage of the teaching (and learning) opportunities found here at your Oregon Caves National Monument & Preserve. Thanks for your involvement and input.
Curriculum-Based Education Programs
Grades 3-5: Geology: Our Changing World
To provide curriculum-based educational opportunities that allow participants to develop connections with the natural and cultural resources at Oregon Caves. By doing so, the hope is to instill an appreciation of our public lands and to promote life-long student who appreciate stewardship.
Curriculum-Based Education Field Trips
Before visiting the monument, we need ALL visitors to help protect our bats. A fatal disease in bats known as White-Nose Syndrome has already killed millions of bats across North America, and is spreading west. Avoid spreading the fungus that causes white-nose syndrome in bats!
