Educational and interpretive learning programs are offered for visitors to many of America�s public land recreation sites. These programs bring science and history to life, and inspire the imagination. Educational opportunities range from learning about the geology of the Grand Canyon to understanding more about how laws are made in Washington, DC.
Rangers, guides and naturalists located at America�s parks, forests, seashores, lakeshores, and wilderness areas offer campfire talks, guided hikes, museums and exhibits for young and old alike. Reservations may be required to participate in interpretive activities. Please contact the recreational site of interest to you for more information.

Practice Good Stewardship of our Public Lands:
You can help to take good care of our public lands so that others may enjoy these areas for years to come by practicing some of the following actions:
Don't Litter... take along a trash bag or other receptacle for collecting your trash so that you can deposit it in the proper trash receptacle.
Make sure that you follow the verbal or posted directions by local staff so that you can both enjoy and respect the wildlife and vegetation on nature walks and outdoor programs. Don't take anything away and don't leave anything from your visit to the great outdoors.
Don't wander into areas where it is not permitted. These areas have been declared "off limits" to protect wildlife, vegetation, or for your safety.
