Are You Up for the Parks Climate Challenge?

Alanna SobelNPF Blog

Following the success of October 2011's Electronic Field Trip (EFT) to Arizona's Saguaro National Park, we are excited to announce the launch of another innovative program - the Parks Climate Challenge!

Similar to the EFT program (which in the past four years alone has engaged more than 400,000 people across the country and around the world!), this new online program combines the use of national parks as engaging classrooms with unique web-based technologies so that teachers have the tools they need to teach the powerful lessons of climate change in a way that students will find fresh, new and interesting!

Parks Climate Challenge offers teachers a platform from which to develop curriculum and engage with other teachers around the country to find out how students best learn first-hand about the issues of climate change through the lens of national parks. The program encourages teachers to develop hands-on service projects with their students through a national park experience either within or outside the boundaries of a national park. Take a moment to learn more at!

We think this program model can be replicated nationally. What do you think?
