Rocky Mountain National Park's 415 square miles encompass and protect spectacular mountain environments in northern Colorado. Through utilizing basic video conferencing platforms, students across the country (and the world!) can bring Rocky Mountain National Park into their classroom! Whether your students are investigating the four ecosystems of Rocky, researching ranger opportunities, or delving into the fascinating world of winter, they're sure to have a memorable one-on-one experience with a ranger. Rocky's education program is proud to have developed this new way to connect with students that otherwise may never have had the opportunity to visit Rocky Mountain National Park. We look forward to expanding the reach of these programs to inspire students, our future park stewards.
