Parks Climate Challenge

Teachers monitoring water
NPF's Climate Challenge program provides on-site training about climate change for science teachers.

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 trained teachers to educate their students about climate change using national parks as classrooms.

Through two training opportunities (in-person and online) the participating teachers received the tools they needed to teach climate change in their classroom leveraging the national parks. Both methods also encouraged teachers to take an additional step by developing hands-on service projects with their students through a national park experience.
