Using our nation’s national parks as living classrooms, we provide educational programs to students interested in environmental science and conservation.

Preparing the Next Generation

We strive to instill a love of nature and a desire to protect the environment in all our students. We teach them how to live green and advocate for the Earth, inspiring them to protect our planet and parks. Through our environmental science programs, we’re getting high school and elementary students outside and active in 33 national parks.

A Word From a Nature Knowledge Student

“These places really bring something that the city does not, which is peace and tranquility.”
