Ranger-led Field Trips


Shenandoah National Park offers free ranger-guided, curriculum-based programs for grades 2-6 that directly support the Virginia Science Standards of Learning and the National Science Education Standards. Teachers are required to attend a free teacher workshop prior to bringing their students on a program. At the workshop, teachers receive pre-visit and post-visit activities to be used in the classroom and learn how best to incorporate the park program into their classroom lesson plans. Park rangers lead the in-park programs, which generally last two hours. Group size is limited to 45-60 students. Prior registration is required and space is limited. Programs are normally offered two times a year: in the spring (April-June) and in the fall (September-November)

To request a program, please complete a program request.
