Explore Yosemite with our education partner: NatureBridge programs

NatureBridge environmental science programs in Yosemite National Park offer students in grades K-12 the opportunity to learn hands-on science in one of the world’s most stunning geologic wonders. Two- to five-day residential outdoor science programs are led by experienced educators and customized to enhance your school’s curriculum. Students hike through the dramatic landscapes of Yosemite, explore ancient groves of giant sequoias, ski across snowy meadows, and challenge themselves to reach the tops of waterfalls. Focused on inquiry-based learning, students engage in field research projects and discover how humans and the environment are connected, from past to present.

The National Park Service Teacher Ranger Teacher (TRT) program is an extended professional development opportunity for educators from K-12 schools to learn about the resources and educational materials available through the National Park Service. Teachers participating in Yosemite’s Teacher Ranger Teacher program will have the opportunity to live and learn in the park including completing an education project in conjunction with park staff, developing lesson plans to be used in their classroom or school, participating in online courses through the University of Colorado and increasing their understanding of place-based learning. The six-week long program is offered June-August.
