Summer Session May 24th – July 2nd
National Parks Exploration invites you to explore the astonishing beauty & priceless treasures of the National Parks! ! Students will learn about the major National Parks, including a history of the park systems, cultural significance of the parks, and explore the beauty of the natural landscapes. This class would be an excellent summer supplement to “beef up” both United States History & Earth Science course studies! This class is suitable for students in grades 6th– 12th.
The parks do not belong to one state or to one section…. The Yosemite, the Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon are national properties in which every citizen has a vested interest; they belong as much to the man of Massachusetts, of Michigan, of Florida, as they do to the people of California, of Wyoming, and of Arizona. Stephen Mather
