Learning in nature’s classroom

NatureBridge environmental science programs in Yosemite National Park offer students in grades K-12 the opportunity to learn hands-on science in one of the world’s most stunning geologic wonders.  Our two- to five-day residential outdoor science programs are led by experienced educators and customized to enhance your school’s curriculum.

  • A classroom like no other: Students hike through the dramatic landscapes of Yosemite, explore ancient groves of giant sequoias, ski across snowy meadows, and challenge themselves to reach the tops of waterfalls.
  • Inquiry-based learning: Students explore the geologic history of the Sierra Nevada; engage in field research projects, such as macroinvertebrate biomonitoring; and discover how the environment has supported humans, from the early Miwok to the present.
  • Inspired to action: Students are empowered to see how their actions impact their community and the world around them through service learning projects, such as removing invasive species that threaten biodiversity in the Park.
