An Extraordinary Outdoor Laboratory and Classroom

Crater Lake National Park is a wellspring for research information, a proving ground for educational techniques, and a source of inspiration for artistic expression. By supporting scientists and their investigations, we discover more and more about this special place. By connecting scientists with teachers, students, and the visiting public, the park becomes a focal point for lifelong learning.  We invite you to investigate, instruct, and inspire.
