Zion's Outreach Program & Guest Speakers

A park ranger talking to students in a classroom

Zion’s outreach program brings rangers into classrooms, and students into the park. During the school year, park rangers traditionally visit schools in surrounding communities and conduct curriculum-based programs for fourth and fifth grade students. Park rangers also host elementary-aged classrooms in the park, connecting resources to curriculum and providing guided hikes and interactive activities. Programs that link Zion resources to student learning objectives may include PowerPoint presentations, games, discussions, and/or activities.

Special Requests – In the Classroom

Zion National Park is not currently offering any in classroom programming. If your class is interested in connecting with a Zion ranger please visit our distance learning page to learn about our interactive, curriculum-based programming.

Special Requests – In the Park

If your class is planning a field trip to Zion, rangers may be available, based on staffing, to present an orientation or topic-based presentation to your group before you explore the park. Talks are usually 20 to 30 minutes long and typically held at the South Campground Amphitheater. Topics include human and park history, plant and animal adaptations, hydrology, geology, and ecology. For more information on any of these programs, please call (435) 772-3256 or email us.
