"Climate change challenges the very foundation of the National Park
and our ability to leave America’s natural and cultural
heritage unimpaired for future generations

Many of these resources are designed to assist NPS interpretive rangers
develop education programs in parks. This also provide regional studies of
likely climate change impacts, and frameworks for educators.

Youth and Education

We are a team of teachers, docents, scientists, engineers, electricians, techs, artists, students and parents providing
pro bono services for thousands of climate education programs worldwide. While primarily based at science museums
and the University of California, we work with hundreds of schools, programs and science institutions acoss the US
to strengthen the climate education community. If we should be working with you too, let us know.
