Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore (National Lakeshore) is recruiting two Teacher-Ranger-Teachers (TRT) to spend the summer in the park learning about the resources and developing education programs. The application deadline is May 15.
The TRT program is a professional development opportunity for educators from K-12 schools to learn about National Park Service (NPS) education resources and themes. Participants in the program shadow NPS staff working in natural and cultural resource management, environmental education, historical and scientific research, or other career fields. TRTs also develop lesson plans based on NPS resources and produce a major education project during their experience. The program is in partnership with the University of Colorado - Denver, which administers the program and offers continuing education or graduate credits to participants. Successful completion of the TRT program requires approximately 240 hours of effort.
