How We Help
The national parks serve as some of our nation’s finest classrooms and centers of active learning for all ages. From science to the arts, service learning to teacher training, America’s national parks teach invaluable lessons about our planet, our history and ourselves. In an era of shrinking education budgets and fewer opportunities to experience our world firsthand, the National Park Foundation is dedicated to establishing national parks as powerful learning environments that can provide in-depth, real-world learning experiences that shape lives and strengthen America's national parks.
The National Park Foundation is:
- Bringing over 30,000 students to national parks this year through its Ticket To Ride program.
- Working with teachers in all 50 states to embrace national parks as places of classrooms and centers for active learning.
- Making a difference, with over $3.5M provided to national parks through education grants and programs in the last three years.
