Yosemite — An Outdoor Classroom

Yosemite is not just a great place for personal vacations. It is also a terrific place to bring a school group and have Yosemite National Park as an expansion of your classroom. Starting fall 2023, the park's Education Team is once again offering guided ranger programs in Yosemite Valley as well as meet and greets with a ranger for grades K-12 and college groups. Due to limited staffing, we are unable to accommodate field trip requests in spring 2024. Check out our virtual programs in January and February 2024, and more program offerings to come in summer and fall 2024.
