Timpanogos Cave National Monument's free distance learning programs offer students an exciting introduction to the science behind the park.

Ask a Ranger provides an opportunity for your classroom to interact with a Timpanogos Cave park ranger through a live and interactive lesson via the Internet. Students will prepare questions ahead of time and spend 30-60 minutes with the ranger discussing Timpanogos Cave geology, biology, conservation and human history, as well as what it's like to be a Park ranger and work for the National Park Service. Program length depends on how many questions the students prepare and the time restraints of the class.

Program Preparation:
Please have your students prepare thoughtful questions prior to your scheduled program. Questions can be e-mailed in advance.

To Register:
Please fill out the registration form. A ranger will get back to you within 5-10 business days to confirm the program and set up a final date.
