Parks Climate Challenge

How We Help

In an effort to help our next generation better understand the impacts of climate change and connect them to our national parks, the Parks Climate Challenge program trains teachers to educate their students about climate change using national parks as classrooms. Through two training opportunities (in-person and online) the participating teachers receive the tools they need to teach climate change in their classroom leveraging the national parks. Both methods also encourage teachers to take an additional step by developing hands-on service projects with their students through a national park experience. Learn more »
