This year's theme, "Leaving Footprints : Natural Paths to Learning", evolved from many different modes and methods of Outdoor Learning. It refers to leaving lasting impressions or “footprints” in the minds of students and using the natural world as a path to accomplishing the many standards and concepts that must be taught and learned along the way.
The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area strives to help educate people of all ages to the park and its resources. We off er curriculum-based programming, free of charge, to school groups (including home schoolers), those with special needs, scout groups, and other organized educational groups of fifteen or more.
Programs are presented either at your school or at the park. For in-class programs, staff can accommodate several classes in a day (to meet the needs of a grade group). For field studies, staff can accommodate two classes/program/day. Two field study programs can be combined to enrich your field experience.
For more information or to register for a program, please contact the park’s education coordinator, Marjorie Thomas, at 678-538-1243 or the park’s information number at 678-538-1200.
