Special Programs -- Many seasonal programs also occur in the Park throughout the year that may be of interest to teachers. Below is a list of these special programs.
Held every year during the month of February to celebrate Black History month. This 3-day festival occurs at Annaberg Plantation. The events include crafts, music, cooking, storytelling, and other cultural demonstrations.
During the month of April the Park coordinates some special activities to celebrate Earth Day. In the past, recycling contests, special hikes and games have been a part of this celebration.
The Park conducts bird watching hikes during the fall and winter. Students can find migratory birds with the help of a Park ranger and then report their sightings on the Internet to a national sister shorebird program sponsored the U.S. Fish & Wildlife service.
Participate in a world-wide effort on your island to clean up our beaches and coast. Students adopt a beach, collect the trash they find and enter the information about the trash on data cards. This even occurs during the months of September and October.
When archaeology projects are occurring in the Park, students can schedule a trip to visit the site and actually work as an archaeologist for the day. Call to find out about possible projects that may be scheduled.
For groups staying at the Cinnamon Bay Campground, evening slide shows can be arranged. Special topics may be requested. If the clouds stay away, there’s very little light pollution, so our dark skies are beautiful!
