Chat with a Ranger is appropriate for any grade level. In this program, students learn about Zion National Park, the park service, and the ranger themselves as they interact in live time with a uniformed ranger. After an introduction to the National Park Service emblem and meaning, the ranger will address questions from the classroom, using props and presentations to share the ecology, wildlife, and history of Zion National Park. Classrooms prepare and send questions ahead of time.
Zion National Park is one of 417 National Park Service areas. The National Park Service “conserves the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations.” Park Rangers work at National Park sites to help protect these areas. There are different kinds of rangers who work at parks in a variety of positions that all work towards preserving and conserving the park. Zion National Park preserves an area of southwest Utah with massive sandstone cliffs, narrow slot canyons, and a unique array of plants and animals.
