Rocky Mountain National Park

Estes Park, CO
United States

Rocky Mountain National Park is a special place that receives over 4.6 million visitors per year. However, not everyone has the opportunity to visit; therefore, Rocky Mountain National Park's Education Rangers bring a new way to connect students across the country (and the world!) to Rocky- via virtual programs! Virtual programs are a fresh, fun, and an interactive take on the traditional classroom setting. Through these medium, Rocky rangers encourage students to get up and move while they learn, collaborate with their peers, and explore their National Park together. We look forward to expanding the reach of these programs to inspire students, our future park stewards.
