Teachers planning for the Fall 2020 semester can sign up to interact with a Ranger through live curriculum-based field trips, and learn about the natural world preserved within Acadia.

Each student participating needs to have internet access and a device that has audio/video capabilities.  We are using Microsoft Teams software for this programming.  After the program is confirmed we will send a link for the program to the teacher and ask that they forward the link to students.  OR, you can host us on Google Classroom.

Students will have the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the program but will be muted during the main portion of the program.
