NatureBridge programs spark a lasting connection between people, science and nature. From lush green forests to vibrant coastal beaches, our programs take place in some of the most inspiring national park classrooms in the country: Yosemite National Park, Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the Dangermond Preserve in California; Olympic National Park in Washington; and Prince William Forest Park in Virginia. 

With our hands-on curriculum, students get the chance to explore the outdoors through a scientific lens. They see, touch, hear and experience all that the natural world has to offer while developing a compassionate connection to the environment, and to each other. 

NatureBridge environmental science programs are available year-round and open to a variety of age groups. Explore our programs below to find the program that’s right for your students, children or family.
