Plan A Field Trip

A ranger gives students a thumbs up as they share with him all the cool things they learned in the park.

Teachers! Students! Rangers! Oh my! Looking for a new way to teach curriculum, meet State of California standards, and get your students out into the field? Then plan a field trip to the Santa Monica Mountains.

Ranger-led education programs are offered throughout the school year at various of park sites in the mountains.

Programs are booked on a first-come first-serve basis.

These programs specifically target the education curriculum designated for the State of California.

A ranger leads a group of students on a hike to explore the park.

They are:

- Every Kid in a Park - Grade 4

- The Chumash: A Changing Land, A Changing People

- Ecohelpers - Grade 9-12

Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area is one of the best examples of a Mediterranean-type ecosystem in the world. Using our parks as classrooms, we can better understand our environment, history and sense of place.
